I painted this on the beach between Seahouses and Bamburgh in Northumberland. The shape of the clouds caused the sky to stretch and swirl over the textures of the sand. Light danced on the sea. I worked some sand from the beach into the paint in the foreground to add structure to the beach. The energy of the clouds was created with a thick, almost impasto application of paint.
