'Winter Beach'

'Winter Beach'
70cm x 50cm
graphite on paper

I was going through my archives today and came across this drawing of Mablethorpe beach in mid-winter...not so snowy that year though!...but I do remember the gale force wind while I was trying to make some studies on the beach!  Needless to say I wasn't on the beach very long!   It was the haphazard fencing that attracted me. It almost looked as if it was growing out of the sand. I feel that sometimes monochrome says more and that the power of the image can be diluted by colour. For this reason I never ever took this drawing into paint.
