Cape Hatteras Shoreline

Cape Hatteras Shoreline

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.

  1. Gorgeous values, Debbie. You have captured the swell of the water and passed on the feeling of being there. Love the element of texture and the bright patches of light.

  2. As I said I’m a sucker for charcoal and graphite, its Beautiful, realistic, like you can touch it.

  3. I’ve been to Cape Hatteras and loved it along with all of the Outer Banks.

    This is a beautiful charcoal drawing and it really captures the light and shadow.

    This one is definitely one of my favourites Deb,
    I like the atmosphere that you have generated
    within the charcoal, drawn with skill and a very
    good command of artistry…
