North Rocks, Black's Beach: Hazy Sunlight
with artist's silver seal, Binnie, numbered in pencil on the bottom margin from an edition limited to 100, titled North Rocks, Black's Beach: Hazy Sunlight, and signed in pencil, Paul Binnie, 2023
oban tate-e 16 1/8 by 11 3/4., 41.1 by 30 cm
This print, and its moonlight companion, 'Moon Shadows,' are the seventh and eighth prints in Binnie's Black's Beach series depicting views from each of the six main access points to the remote California beach. The print shows a figure perched on the large rocks which form a headland between Black's Beach itself and Torrey Pines Beach to the north, a state nature reserve. This long view southwards down the beach displays the misty aerial perspective of blue outlines and shadows in hazy sunlight, and the sky and the cliffs are reflected in the various areas of damp and wet sand at the ocean's edge. The foreground rocks of the title are also particularized and each is printed with a unique color and texture to depict the individual stones and pebbles themselves.
