Why Is The Ocean Green?

25 Aug

Because the sea weed. [GROAN] That’s what happens when I spend a couple of days with small nephews.


A traditional rainy bank holiday in Britain again. It’s been tipping down all day but cleared up a bit this evening so Husb and I headed down to the beach; he ran 7k along the promenade and I worked out on the free gym equipment.

The tide was fully in and just a few feet from the edge of the prom, so I wandered down and dipped my toes. And drew them. It’s hard finding marks to protray the sea, especially when you just have a fine pen, but I did my best. The sea weed sloshed over my toes. It tickled.

Drawn with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S, into my little A6 spotty sketchbook.
