Paintings II: Abstraction

I'm pleased I perservered with this painting based on  very brief sketches between showers at Blackpool Sands. I was intrigued by the curves cut into the shingle where a stream joined the sea. With so little material to base it on, once I'd made a start with painting (bottom picture) and identified the areas that were working, it was a matter of feeling my way, balancing elements. Sometimes the bits you love best have to go!
