Close but I will need to go back to this one. I stood on the dock the night before and wanted to try to capture the image from memory. A day or two later i took this photo. When I see the two together I’m not actually far off but I need to do it again. I see where I went wrong. The lights from the houses we far more intense than the image and photo portray. Maybe it was not quite dark enough when I took the photo. Any way I’m on track and cant wait to do it again and make it great.
I went out that day to with my pencils in hand. I kept saying “I’m trying to find the beauty in the ugly” LOL. I wanted to practice figures. The beach was a great place to draw because people tend to sit in one place for a period of time just long enough to capture the positions. Of course it never fails that they move before you finish and you have to use your imagination to finish. I want to go to the city and get people on benches next. Homeless would be the best to capture.
I had to spend some time waiting in the airport to fly home from Key West. I brought my watercolor pencils with me and my pad just in case. I had the image of the Island at night still burning in my head so I started going at it in while I waited. I was pleased with the pencils and finished it off with a black pen for detail. It was an amazing way to make the time go by and before I knew it I was home and no time wasted! 🙂
