Beach grasses working drawing

beach grasses sketch

This is a quick drawing I made when thinking about how to draw the grasses growing on the edge of an eroding beach. I tried to capture the way the grasses hang on with their roots exposed in the collapsing sand. I played around with the background too, seeing if a black background would bring out the feeling of the windblown grasses more dramatically.

It’s done in pencil and felt pen on paper and is very small – about 4 cms wide.
