Another drawing from Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge’s sketchbook during her recent visit to Homer, Alaska. Bishops Beach is strewn with piles of driftwood, huge tree trunks scattered along the high water line like monster pick-up sticks. It is a great place to explore. When the tide is out miles of beach are exposed and become an endless playground for walking, running or hunting sea shells. During high tide the drift logs stacked on sand become warm shelter from the wind, or a challenging maze to search for treasures from the sea. Artist Niebrugge started this drawing by splattering and randomly applying watercolor, then sketched the logs and sand with pen and ink. The contrast between the hard ink lines and the flowing wet on wet paint creates texture and gives the “look” of hard dry wood against the soft vegetation.
