This scene is from the Algarve coast on a day where clouds were gathering and the waves were surging up the golden, flat beach. The golden cliffs sweep around the coast, melting into the horizon.
I wanted to capture the energy across the whole scene, from the swiftly moving clouds to the approaching waves, to the foam flooding up towards us. For this reason, I used acrylics for this piece in order to work quickly and energetically.
