I holiday, by the coast, in Mallorca twice each year. It’s a favourite place of mine. When I started at School Of Acrylic Painting, in January this year, I was taught how to paint in this style. We didn’t use reference photos – we painted from our imagination. However, it’s reminiscent of Mallorca’s coastline.
I enjoyed the process. It was calming to paint from left to right in a smooth way. This technique is helpful as therapy for my mental health disorders because of the left to right motion (used by EMDR professionals). I also like the calming nature of the seascape – hence its name ‘calm coast’.
