Beach paintings are popular, there is no doubt. Most people treasure pleasant memories of spending time at the beach. For some perhaps it is the tranquil atmosphere of gentle waves washing over the sandy shore as they stroll along in the sand. Others take delight in the powerful display of nature where towering waves break in the sky and crash down onto the shoreline, leaving a mist of dampness on your skin if you get too close.
Families building sand castles, the rhythmic plop, plop, plop, plop of a paddle ball game, and the grainy taste of sand in your sandwich, are all powerful memories shared by many.
You can observe people relaxing at the beach, letting their guards down, and quite literally, often baring it all. It is no wonder that beach settings have featured prominently throughout the history of art.
