Here it is, all finished. I have been looking at it for a couple of days now and am going to leave this one as it is. I am happy with the final result and I would like to do a few more ocean drawings. Every time we are at the beach I use up a ridiculous number of pixels taking pictures of the water and waves. I get captivated with the way the surf moves, expanding and contracting, out and in, and the patterns that are formed as each wave washes the shore. And the way the light at various times of day plays off the water, it's always something different to see. The last time we were at our favorite Edisto Beach the water was an amazing blue, like I had never noticed before. That is what I hoped to capture with my photos, and translate into this drawing. That incredible blue.
