Striped Towel at Dusk

I love sketching people on the move. This is from Hapuna Beach, Hawaii, where I was drawing with pastels after a long swim. I saw a man going down to the water with a towel for his companion. They both seemed so vigorous and alive. I admired them and tried to capture their lively steps in this sketch. Later I painted the sketch with gouache.

  1. I especially love how you depicted the water right up at the beach- it fits in with the same feeling as the people. I always admire how you depict water and especially water in motion.
