Retro Sketch

These are from a sketchbook back in 2003, done during a day trip to Jones Beach on south shore of Long Island, NY. I started with a few pencil sketches to figure out the mechanics and actions of how the waves broke, along with the lights and darks they created on the water. Next, I threw down two watercolor studies to capture the color of the water and sky.

Not only did I enjoy the sketching that afternoon, but also the lovely summer day spent with my girlfriend. I think she liked the sketches, too; nine months later, she married me!
