Water's edge studies
My views of the Atlantic Ocean continue to hold a fascination for me. I love the different shades of blues and turquoises that appear depending on the light quality.
These views are at the water's edge in Flatrock and Pouch Cove and I'm working out my pastel kinks with them. The subtleties of values is what makes water visually appealing and believable to me. Trying to capture that on paper isn't always successful. These are more of works in progress than finished pieces, as I feel my way through waves, foam and rocks in this medium.
