Painting of Kingsgate Bay, Kent

"Afternoon Walk on the Beach", Kingsgate, Kent.

Not quite the White Cliffs of Dover... but not that far away.

Kingsgate Bay is one in a series of bays backed by white cliffs between Margate and Broadstairs on the Kent coast.

With the cliffs and the flat sandy beaches, as seen here with a falling tide leaving a beach full of ribbons of water... just wonderful to try and capture all the changes in colour and tone. For an area like this, I find it best to work wet into wet so that the blending is that much better.
