The Sea

Originally a response to a series of wave paintings by Maggi Hambling, I also became inspired by an artist by the name of April Gornik, who is known for her realistic wave paintings and drawings of calm seascapes. I decided to draw this piece in pencil because I like the effect it has on the waves, almost allowing them to take their true form as they crash on the page.
