I often go to Druridge Bay on the Northumberland coast with my family. We marvel at the ridgy patterns in the sand that are surprisingly firm under bare feet. Every day new ones are made by the retreating tide with infinite variations. "Radiance" took a lot of thought for how to achieve the reflections from the pools of water in between the sand-bars. I was pleased when I found some textured paper with a ripple pattern that I could print with. I used it sparingly so it didn't overwhelm the other more delicate marks and textures.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
