Tidal Cove

The Coquille Point rock formations soften the tides as they spill around the rocks to form ever changing ripply pools. With this painting, in addition to layering and scraping, a heat pen was used to capture the reflective water patterns.

Tide Pool Flow

This is a larger,  more detailed tide pool painting than “Tide Pool Collage” done last month.  Printed and stained tissue papers were embedded in the wax to create the texture and color of encrusted rocks and anemones. This contrasts with the smooth, translucent encaustic water effects of the tide pool’s depth and flow.
