This artwork is the portrayal of rhythm, gracefulness, and fluidity of movement. It is a dance between rose lace swirling ocean waves and a young girl splashing in the shallow water.
It is a celebration of poise, roses and the sea, with an orange and beige palette bringing warmth and energy to the scene.
I love the solitude of the dance and the immersion the child has with this moment. Yet, there is a sophistication to her pose, that adds a timeless feminine element.
I was definitely experimenting away from my usual bright colours here. This is a beach illustration devoid of classic nautical blue.
The beach is actually full of browns and warm tones.
I will leave you with this photo mood board of imagery.
