For Week 17 of my weekly art project, I continue underwater near the rockpool at the northern end of the beach at Copacabana. This time my focus is the lush seagrass. I really wanted to capture the way it moves with the waves:
Sometimes it takes a few sketches to refine the composition. I did these on my iPad using the Sketch Club app:
Generally I make my pieces bigger and trim them back to 6 1/2x 6 1/2in (before facing). I use a cardboard cutout with a 6x6in window to audition various orientations and to make sure that no important element will be lost in the process.
