waves and dunes are the same thing. / mono print

this is a close up

Waves and dunes are the same shapes. They both are always moving but you don’t notice the dune moving. They’re so much alike you could dress a dune up in wave colors, tell people it’s a wave and everyone would believe you.

this is the full view of my mono print.

I want to paint waves but it’s too hot to hang around on the beach. I used my sketch of a dune and did a palette knife painting of it with wave colors from memory, then folded the paper in half to make a mono print.

this is my palette knife painting before I smooshed it.

Dunes are like waves in another way, they’re breaking.

In my dune sketch there is some plant life on top of the dune and the sand breaks below the vegetation. So instead of painting that part green I used white and it would put the white water of a breaking wave in the right place. It’s me dressing a dune in wave colors.

This mono print is a variation of the dune painting I’m working on and hope to finish tomorrow if I can get up early enough to be at the beach before it gets too hot.
