New seascape painting

Hello there:)

I’m back from my holiday in Japan. This year I stayed in one of the Southern islands of Japan called ‘奄美大島 Amami Oshima’, as my parents moved there from Yokohama this year. It’s a very beautiful island with subtropical climate surrounded by the beautiful nature and the sea.
Here are some photos of the island I took..

When I was looking through the photos, I was inspired to paint the seascape in watercolour.

This beach is called Honohoshi Kaigan, which is famous for the round stones and noises they make when the waves hit.

Started painting from the rocks..

Adding the sky and the beach



Added people, more details on the beach to suggest the round stones.

Then splashes of white paints to suggest the waves.

Here is the finished piece:)
