Sand Paintings

San Francisco-based landscape artist Andreas Amador etches massive sand drawings onto beaches during full moons when his canvas reaches its largest potential. To make sure he has everything he needs before he begins, Amador, crafts the image over and over on a computer using the hand-drawn original from his sketch book. His works exist for only a few moments, just long enough to snap a few photographs before being completely engulfed by the encroaching tide. So far Amador has created over 100 ‘doodles’ onto beaches in the San Francisco Bay area over the past 5 years.
