Sketchbook excerpt / Color Study
Some weekends no matter how beautiful it is outside I end up in front of the computer working. It's those times that I look out my window and sketch or as I am editing, a certain photo will beckon a sketch. The ocean's shifting colors always hypnotize me. I love their calming tones, reflective/transparent nature and depth. I attempted to capture some of that in my spiral sketchbook as solid color practice. I felt completely overwhelmed the last few days and these sketching exercises are more valuable than they look. Trust me.
I needed the calm of the ocean this weekend and even in photo form it provided it. I love a great ocean view ♡
p/s. there was something about the manmade tractor tracks against the expansive peaceful ocean that first appealed to me here.
