Nothing beats a fun day at the beach during the summer when life in the city gets unbearable. Sally West knows how to transfer that feeling onto a canvas with her abstract paintings that show the best that beaches have to offer. She captures the unique beauty of the waves, the sand, and people enjoying their day without really having to draw in the details.
“I have always loved the beach. It’s where I feel happy and I don’t think I will ever move away from it,” she told The Chromologist. “When life gets hard I go to the beach… and everything seems beautiful again. I love the sound of the waves, the ability to see the horizon and visual appeal. It just keeps me going back.”
The artist layers colors to create the desired effect before adding in the brushstrokes that represent people and their beach equipment. Scroll down to see the paintings she makes.
