Self directed Project this year

This year I decided to look at the coastlines of the world, I started using the beautiful tropical colours to create paintings (like some of the above) but then got bored as it had no meaning. Using the basis of this quotation 'it is seen as a thing of natural beauty, but yet as you get closer, you begin to notice all the imperfections.' Like; problems only caused by humans, pollution, rubbish, urbanization etc... This has led to where I am now of creating paintings, where if you stand back from them, they are an abstract stunning, classic beach scene, as you look closer, you notice the layering of the imperfections like rubbish and text incorporated into it. (some of the above are sections of paintings with this narrative)
