I have recently completed five 22" by 30" graphite drawings of ocean surf. These originated from photographs that I have taken on trips to the California and Oregon coasts. I'm fascinated with the variety of watery textures, dark water vs. foamy whiteness, wet sand and dry, and how the waves sweep onto and over beaches.
This is the newest drawing of the series, titled Perigean Tide II. In 1983, I photographed storm surf sweeping over the beaches in Southern California during an unusually high tide called a Perigean Spring Tide. See the other four drawings from this series on the page of Drawings.
