AB August Challenge

For this months challenge, we were to use the theme "At the beach".
I found a picture of four vintage bathing beauties and decided to use
this as my main focus. I did a watercolor wash of blue and ocher and
while still wet sprinkled with coarse salt and let dry. This makes
a textured background. Then I added some gel medium and used
white sand to mimic drifts. Lastly I added a shell to complete the image.
I framed the sides with  complementary beach/sea images.
