"Sand Beach Surf"

Acadia National Park, Maine

Watercolor painting of Sand Beach in Acadia National Park, Maine by Beth Whitney | Downeast Watercolors

"Sand Beach Surf" is a dynamic seascape painting featuring powerful waves in Acadia National Park's famous sandy beach.  Original watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

This painting of Sand Beach's surf shows a brisk November day, just after a serious storm. The waves were really rolling in and the ocean had such wonderful dark shades of blue and green, which contrast perfectly with the light sand.

We had the beach all to ourselves that day, and I remember it was really windy. In fact, as we continued down Ocean Drive, the waves crossed the road and hit the cliffs on the far side. Very exciting on a one-way road!

This painting has sold, but giclee prints are available in my shop.
