Moon on the beach


Near Middleton beach.
The moon illuminates the beach from behind the clouds and attracts walkers on this special night.

Thanks for your comments April. Pthalo blue - goodness no! ;-) I havent used that blue in a long time as it is so stainy. The palette for this painting is paynes grey, red, raw sienna, pthalo blue red shade ( a great blue that I use consistantly with my skies and white.
