Day 4: Strada Easel Challenge

Water soluble graphite and gouache on Strathmore Gray Toned Paper

Today we were in between storms. There was a high surf warning going on when I got to the beach and there was no place safe to draw. I stayed in my car again. I suspect that many of the drawings for this month's challenge will be done from my car! Fortunately, I wasn't far from the high tide line by the side of the road.

So far I have been going to my local beach to draw the waves, about a mile from my house as the crow flies. I will be traveling up and down the coast a few miles to draw at the other beaches. They are all a bit different and they change every day and hour. The waves and beach looked quite different when I took the second photo than when I started the drawing.

I really do love drawing and painting waves! I have yet to get them on paper and canvas to my satisfaction. There are a lot of subtle nuances to learn.
Until tomorrow,
