During the most recent visit to Fort Bragg, Ca., I actually spent a lot of time just sitting on the beach as opposed to the patio of our hotel room. I was able to sketch people on the beach from a perspective I enjoy. I love exploring this town and state in pen, watercolor, pastel...I was drawing as fast as I could on a beautiful piece of paper in ink. I was drawn to how tall the dad was and the baby on his shoulders. I loved the action in the waves too.
