Waves and rocks —acrylic painting



I’m finding it a lot easier to paint waves in acrylics compared to watercolours, you can overpaint to get frothy foam.




Lying on shingle, hat over face
Having wriggled a hollow in the stones
Dry crackling thumps from breaking waves
Fill my ears
White noise with a heartbeat that matches my own
Muscles melt in the sun
Flow  into the beach
The high tide has stopped three feet from my toes
