Bamboo Island, Thailand

Bamboo Island and Long tail Boat from Laem Tong Beach,(loose) Phi Phi Island, 25:10:15

Acrylic on Black Paper, 14.5 x 20 cm, 25/10/2015

This painting was done at the same time as the larger Bamboo Island with Longtail Boat from a path on Laem Tong Beach outside Room 118. This smaller work is more expressive and allowed me to see how the thin layers of tone and colour worked when built up. You can see the dark areas of coral in the shallow water and the darker deeper ocean leading to small deserted beaches on Bamboo Island. I like the way the black background and thin layers of paint create the feeling of evening or moonlight although it was painted during the day.
