Charcoal drawing of the Cape Hatteras Shoreline in North Carolina of the United States. Also known as the Outer Banks ( OBX).
Outer Banks is my home away from home during the summertime. I can also pull my 4wheel drive right up to the shoreline and set up my things right by my truck. The shoreline is more than 70 miles long, and is a site to behold. The peace and tranquility make me feel like a new person each morning that I arrive at the beach. I enjoy to walk along this great beauty each morning to get my morning exercise, and find a shell or two along the way, then sit back, relax and read a good book.
I used swift, smooth strokes moving in the direction I wanted the clouds. Same with the sand and water, then I lift some color out of the water to give the illusion of waves. I used compressed charcoal for the the landscape foliage by blotting, and using quick short strokes.
