Late Winter Beach

While looking through my photos for ideas, I found this quiet scene that I decided to draw. It attracted me because preparations the holidays seem to get so busy and rushed that my artwork gets put aside and I didn't want to let that happen. I found working on this serene view of Second Beach in Middletown calmed my spirits. The most difficult part was the fencing but old weathered fencing doesn't have to be perfectly straight so it wasn't that much of an issue. I worked on Strathmore vellum bristol board which doesn't take a lot of layers but enough and the surface fairly smooth. The piece is 7x10" so I was able to finish it quickly.
