SAND ART

Mystical struck me as I was walking on the beach in Plymouth at my sisters house. We came upon a work of art created from the oceans water etched in the sand. The movement of water carved the perfect fossil.




 I chose a muslin because I felt the affect from the rough fabric would suit the image. I then used thread play to create the fossil and colored pencil for shading. I added stitched flecks of opalescence thread to add a sparkle that is seen naturally in the sand.
