The sea is as unpredictable as the weather and find the watching the ocean fascinating. While sketching on the Bonavista peninsula in Newfoundland, I saw a dark blue line far out on the water near the horizon. In minutes it went from a beautiful sunny day, to one with a torrential, windy downpour. I wanted to capture that expansive aloneness, the depth of the sea, and its constant, heaving changes.
