Sketch Long Beach by Casey Chalem Anderson

Sketch Long Beach by Casey Chalem Anderson

Seeing the bay in various shades of teal sparkling in the sunshine made me appreciate the sea all over again. I didn’t realize just how much I missed it when I spent last Spring in the city.

As I move the pen across the paper I attempt to capture the thrill of being there.  I felt those tenderly overlapping squiggles depicting the movement of the water gently reach back into space. I didn’t think about it, I just went there.

Not every sketch works. It is so easy to overdo with details and take the life out of it. But when it works, I fall in love with the language of line . In the span of 5 minutes, a sketch can express energy and calm simultaneously.

All the best,


P.S. Don’t forget to check out my original oil paintings at Romany Kramoris Gallery on Main Street in Sag Harbor while the show is up through May 5.

There are ocean waves and lush flower fields of the East End.
