This is a sun setting. Originally it was meant to be a beach with the sun setting behind the water, but the paint accidentally dripped down from the sun into the blue of the sea. l was in my grandad's shed using his paints, because he was an artist, and there was a random long stick in there so l thought it would look cool if l used the stick to scrape the paint down the canvas, and it ended up looking like a really good abstract piece. l didn't mean for this to happen, but there were white bits left from the canvas which turned out to make it look a lot better too.
