"Washed Ashore" 8" X 11" Pastel
This old fishing boat has met a sad end along the California coast. From Big Sur up to Washington State the waters in the coastal vicinity can be unpredictable. With strong currents and rapid weather changes a captain has to be vigilant and cautious.
This pastel was painted on Wallis paper dry-mounted on foamboard. I chose not to do an underpainting with this one because I was afraid the dry-mount wouldn't hold up to the liquid and become loose. But, again, the rough, sanded coating of Wallis made for lots of fun with the texture.
