When I take walks along the beach, I’m always looking for beach inspiration finds for drawings, photos and paintings
On this day, the first day of fall, I found so many. Stones, feathers, dog prints, and even a kindred soul left some things along the way too. The Happy Fall message created on the beach was there when I walked far along the coast.
I feel the same way…fall is beautiful.
A petoskey stone is a prized find along the coast of Lake Michigan in the north west part of Michigan. This is a small one but you can see the pattern that distinguishes it from all other rocks. I’ve drawn illustrations of these stones.
I came across this heart of stones topped off with a feather made by a kindred spirit.
Simple white seagull feather…I’ve drawn these as well.
I haven’t included dog prints in any of my work as of yet…
The west coast of Michigan has a variety of stones because of the way the Great Lakes were formed…all beautiful in color and pattern. I’m thinking I may draw them.
The colors of the water and sky are beautiful.
Dog day at the beach.
The kindred soul left this rock and stone sculpture in the grass.
