Lent & Dunes (drawingaday)

by Edward Traub

A while back I had done another quick sketch of the forms I saw in a sand dune here on the shores of Lake Michigan.  I decided to take that sketch and do another.  Here it is.

The discipline of drawing involves repetition of the subject.  This piece is a essentially the same scene from above, but meant to evoke the violence of waves.

By further contemplating the essence of water, this peculiar piece emerged.  It just struck me as a little strange.
