Posted on August 6, 2019 by codonoghueShoreline at Crystal Bay watercolor, 18 x 26 cm, Shoreline at Crystal BayThe color of the water is perfect. It was a cloudy greenish blue in this bay, changing as clouds blocked the sun, as it deepened and surrounds rocks. The view is from the restaurant at Crystal Bay Beach Resort. When I look at this painting, I see the reflection of the sky in the water. Or do I see a sky invading a protruding yellow mass? Saturated sand melting into water. The rocks which are everywhere on that beach are imagined here from a different vantage point. They remain flat as a frame for the line where sand and water meet.
