Still at the beach

if only in my head. Wishful thinking really. This is the latest in my beach series done with an underpainting of washed Inktense watercolor pencils then Coloursofts over top. I'm still trying to let my pastel studies influence these colored pencil pieces, keeping things a little loose and as expressive as I can. I liked the soft morning light of this scene creating that glow on the dune grasses.
