Seaside Entangle

Piece description from the artist

Seaside Entangle is one of the first pieces in a set of experiments with ink. I do a lot of fine line detailed ink drawings, mostly abstract but also some scenes. I also use archival art markers to deliver controlled areas of color. Creating a scene using Art Marker presents challenges unique to the medium. The markers create a hard line and don't really blend at all. However they can be layered and the colors can be bled into one another.

So the experiment – how do I create a seascape evocative of the complex patterns of color light and movement in … well … the sea? Can it be done using my beloved markers in a manner that still shouts out my style? I'm not exactly subtle with my style.

Shoreline Entangle is, to my mind, a successful experiment. The feeling of water, sky, and sand is captured, and fine line crazy patterns describe and define surf and ripples without being too literal.
