Hello my dear Steemians,
Summer is outdoor time and of course the waterside such as coast, channel and beach are very popular and beloved by us human. When we decide to spend time at water we would like to stay few hours and of course to have a nice picnic, but as it is very human sometimes we tend to leave our garbage just there where we had picnic or as young people if they spend night at shore they leave such rubbish like bottles and cans.
That is why I decided to dedicate my painting today to that very topic, the disaster we are producing with our egoistic attitude.
I knew about plastic ending up in our rivers, channels but it was not clear for me how much plastic now everywhere, from Cornish beaches, to uninhabited Pacific islands. It is even being found trapped in Arctic ice.
When we think about the birth of life on Earth, it was only due to water on our planet, that made it possible for us to live.
It is very sarcastic but now we are poisoning that source of life by dumping our garbage in it.
According "Greenpeace" about 12 millions of all sort of plastic ends up yearly in our water, it is like a truck full of garbage a minute.
But have you heard recent news where after the checking even drinking water in plastic bottle it was discovered that even there you find small micro-plastic, very fancy name but that made me shocked.
It is a disaster that is there so we have to clean our rubbish ourselves, my friends. I saw recently a web site that is called
Plastic Whale sourse:
Plastic Whale is the first professional plastic fishing company in the world, grounded in Amsterdam, NE
One of the project was to clean Amsterdam channels plastic-free. From the first load of plastic they build up a boat that has a shape of whale, that was really cool!
Another thing that motivated me, while walking at sea-side I saw a boy who was trying to fish out few plastic bottles floating at the shore. I was really impressed that such a young boy was a his heart a "Greenpeacer" When I asked why he is fishing out the bottle, he told me:
That made me laugh, but even with such reason I was satisfied, if people fishing out plastic that is the main aim and no matter what the reason behind it.
First the easiest part sky and horizon:
More intense colours for figure and rocks
Now the rest with my colours and brushes:
