At the bay

100 - 1 (16)

This is a quick sketch from a cove at Mission Beach. I actually sketched it in ink last week but left the site before adding color. Today I experimented at home with markers and watercolor on several similar black and white sketches.  I overlaid the markers with violet watercolor in the foreground and also used the violet in the sky. I was trying to see if I could convey energy and movement by using a few colors but applying them unevenly and boldly.

    I like the curve of the overpass. It adds something whimsical.


  2. The dark outlines and non-coloring of the man made objects (boats, cars) makes for a nice contrast. I especially like the clean form you chose for your boats 🙂
