Artist's description:

I love artistic licence. It frees us to use our imaginations rather than recreating exactly what's there when what's there isn't exactly what we want to paint. Take this painting for example. The original photograph that I used as a reference was taken on one of the very few sunny days last summer on top of the dunes at Strathy Beach, my favourite beach to walk the dogs.

I didn't want to paint blue skies though so I used the wonder that is artistic licence to turn day to night, make the dune grass a lot more colourful than it originally was and add a little shooting star (which appear more regularly than buses up these parts!)

This is a miniature canvas painted using fine art acryclic spray paint and regular acrylic paint applied with a palette knife to create the texture of the grass and cliffs.

The wooden box frame is natural pine but you could paint or stain it if you prefer.

Materials used:

acrylic spray paint and acrylic paint
