Frenchman's Beach by postapocalypsia Frenchman's Beach by postapocalypsia
I painted a preliminary study of this at the location which I used as reference (along with some photos). It's a beautiful place but I felt it needed a little something extra to transport me to another time or universe, so I added a little of my style of architecture - hope you like it!

I am afraid I don't know...it"s just the name of the beach, but I am sure there is a good story behind it! :)

 I wish I heard the story! Did you read the Daphné du Maurier 's novel:  "The frenchman 's creek"?

This is so beautiful. The waves are just so wonderful. And your architecture gets me every time. Every. Time.

Thank you so much:) Those waves can be tricky to pin down. I wouldn't mind doing another close up version of the building sometime, I'm sure it has some possibilities.

I think you definitely should, if you get the chance. It seems like a perfect place, a house by the sea.

It is such a picturesque spot, but this time of day gives it some extra mystery somehow.
