Jagged Cliff (ink drawing)

Jagged Cliff (ink drawing)

It was my opportunity and pleasure to spend more drawing time near the ocean. Yay! It really is the most soothing thing ever, sitting in the sun, bring directly in front of the subject matter, all while being able to take in other sensory details to enhance the drawing. How does it feel to be next to the grand Pacific Ocean? Even though my feelings are not fully articulated in my language brain, the senses do aid in “telling the story” of the drawing.

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

Ink on paper, 9.5″ x 6″. This is basically a twenty minute study. I’m finding that tracing the horizon with my eyes and “drawing over” the ridges of the cliffs was a great exercise for looking, perceiving accurately, and capturing the natural movement of the shapes. This picture was made on the rocky Northern California coast.

  1. This is such a lovely simple study – I’m impressed you got so much detail in such a short space of time and would love to see what you could do if you gave yourself longer :o)
