Coastal Study

The only places I’ve seen rocks by the water on Hatteras Island is by the jetty and ferry, and on Ocracoke Isand by the the ferry. This oil pastel is a coastal study is of the rocks in those areas, sans the jetty and the ferry.

Using blues and grays and white for the sky and clouds. Several shades of browns for the rocks and several shades of blue for the water. All applied with quick rough strokes.

  1. Oh, to be dipping my toes in the cool ocean waters, and the sun warming up my body and soul… can’t wait till March! Another beautiful piece of art and a wonderful reminder of summer.

    • I hear you, Ryan. My husband and I are pondering the beach already; pretty much on a daily basis. We both can’t wait for the Spring to get here so we can be on our way there. I know you like the water too.
      Thank you for the comment!

    You have got the water down pat. Love the dark clouds…those are my favorite, we see them all the time out here. 🙂

    • Oh, you would be kind enough to say that. 🙂 I’m sure you get your share of clouds like this in your location.
      Thanks for the comment!

  3. The water and rocks and sky all look magical. I love the reflections on the water.

  4. Somber. I keep coming back to this. I think with this one, you have passed on that somber feeling as night takes hold on our visions. Very cool.

  5. I like the stillness in this work. I can almost hear the waves gently lapping on the rocks. Lovely.

  6. I do like you different contrasts in the sea and the sky.
    It brings about a very interesting perspective.
    Also the light reflections in the water. awesome

    • Thank you, Richard. I’m a bit new to the medium and am trying different things with them, thus the sky.
      Thanks for the comment!
