A few years ago, my husband and I were driving in the Central Coast area and decided to take a road branching of from the Coast Hwy 1 to a beach area that was just breathtaking! In some parts there were dune buggies and lots of activity, but with a little perseverance we got a great view of an almost untouched coastline. I must admit, the red flowers are right out of my imagination!
Well, it looks like this drawing could use a little help from Photoshop as it’s very washed out. So, you may see this again soon and a little darker. I’ve taken a little license to add a little purple to what were really very blue flowers…hence the name “Big Blue” and I love the name “Sea Holly”!. I used my favoriet sketching method…draw with ink pens (flairs), then work it over with brush and water. I usually try to warm up with some sketches before jumping into a pastel or watercolor and I’ve been absent lately visiting the Art Festival, etc. Maybe on to pastel tomorrrow!
