How to paint the beach Perusing what people have been searching for in the past week, I noticed someone was looking for "how to paint the beach technique". I've several articles on sea painting, which whoever it was would've found if they'd searched for "sea" using the search box in the top right-hand corner. In case they didn't, I'm listing them here in the hope that they see find it. The term "beach" makes me think of white sand as far as you can see, but of course that's only one type of beach. Where I'm living now, the shore is generally a dark black-brown and rocky.
