Sketch of the Week: Ocean

Since I live near the ocean and love watching the sea, it is not surprising that the first sketch I made this year was at the beach. This one is Redondo Beach. It was a sunny, bright day with enough waves to attract surfers.

I made the artwork below for my brother as a holiday gift, and it is based on several sketches done at the beach.

Love the composition of the top one - I hadn't thought of leaving the beach blank - I always fill it with an attempt at the look of 'sand'.

Thanks, Murray! After I've done so many ocean sketches, I've learned to save myself some work by not working on the "sand" :)
