A beautiful sunny morning and the exploitation of a beach, that I had not quite enough stride.
This was the setting for this new beach art project!
The Vergnes beach at Meschers offers a relatively atypical setting with this rock, which comes to rest alone to the left of the beach. I had to make an attempt to exploit it.
On paper, no precise idea actually! Besides, there was no preparation on paper. But the idea of starting on the basis of the dream tree, used in a previous project, quickly sprouted.
So I execute myself and start laying the base of my trees on the sand starting with the clouds.
I then draw the trunks linking the whole thing. There will be 2 trees, one from the central rock and another, which takes root in the cliff. After a few hours of preparation, my brother and a friend will come to join me to finalize the filling of the trees, thus helping me with some shots of rakes.
“Arbres à Sylvains”, you have to wonder why? Simply because, I wanted to give a little more life to this beach art by including in the clouds small characters named as well, from the works of Hayao Miyazaki, of which I am a fan!
I took advantage of this beach art project to take with my drone some additional footages, especially during construction. Usually, I only use it to immortalize the frescoes on the sand.
This allowed me to make a small video montage later on: Youtube Jben Beach Art.
With this video, I participated in a contest organized by the manufacturer of Drone DJI.
A happy idea since it earned me to be the winner of the first prize and I have for the occasion won the last brand new drone of their range! Is life not beautiful !?
