Stones, Low Tide.

Stones, Low Tide
Sketchbook, Watercolour.

Another study for a triptych, I am working on the details, they will be tricky to paint so they will be revealed later (when I know I can do it!)
Here I am standing in the shallow rush of water, the last efforts of a stream as it spreads out over the sand  like strands of mermaids hair, towards the sea.  Round smooth stones catch the light and the water makes small babbling sounds as it rushes over them.  In the distance the waves boom and crash.  Sound is different here, somehow diluted by space and light.
