Love these sketches. The sea was so well done!

Thanks so much! That means a lot because I really struggled with the sea. It's so hard to get right, especially when you just have one pen & one color. When you're looking at it the sea is quite light, but it doesn't make sense to leave it white on the page. So I made it darker and hoped that would help make it clear it's sea vs. sand. Another tricky thing was that the "waves" of the sand are very similar in lines to the sea. To the naked eye they look so different, but when all you have is lines, you see how similar they are! A cool side effect of sketching is it shows us things in different perspectives.

Yeah, I can totally see these challenges. I wouldn't even try to do it with just one black pen.

Haha yeah I wouldn't advise it lol. It was just that I happen to be on vacation for a week and decided to try it as a fun constraint. I think I learned a lot!
