Incoming Tide and Rocks, Thailand

Bamboo Island, rocks and coral,(loose) from Laem Tong Beach, Phi Phi Island,26:10:15

Acrylic on Black Paper, 14.5 x 20.5 cm, 26/10/2015

This was done from Laem Tong Beach on the beautiful Phi Phi Don Island in Thailand. I wanted to show the different colours of the water from the shallow greens to the deeper darker ocean blues. The shallows near the beach were almost crystal clear and the submerged coral gardens cast beautiful shadows under the surface.I also liked the contrast between the bright dry areas of sand and rock and the darker wetter areas of sand and underwater coral. As I was doing this picture the tide started coming in causing the small waves and frothy ripples.
