Rocks & Foam
On a recent trip to Block Island, my husband and I hiked down Mohegan Bluffs to the beach below. The beach is absolutely beautiful because of all the colorful rocks that have been tumbled in the ocean waves to a smooth finish. Since it was a little difficult to take the rocks and climb back up the hill, I took several photos and was inspired to start a drawing from my photos. I'm working from the top photo. I am drawn to the foam from the waves encroaching the rocks on the shore. I am weaving the white of the foam among the stones and also embellishing the colors of the stones. Its another intricate piece, why am I so drawn to such intricate subject matter?!
