One last Kauai post. Oceans and skies. So hard to capture, but such a great challenge. If you look at the early posts with sketches from Day 1, you’ll see a timid, pretty ocean. But its’ never like that in Kauai. The oceans are alive and ever-changing in color. The skies have rain clouds gathering, even on the sunniest days and the trees are always blowing in the trade winds.
Here are my many second-half-of-the-trip attempts at the beach and beach life. You can see more and more sand make it to the page as I work through the week.
Here’s what my palette looked like at the end of 6 days.
I’m switching many of those blues out for more neutrals to take this palette to Chicago next week. And I’m trying to get most of the sand out too.
Here are all the other Kauai posts:
That’s it from Kauai. Mahalo!
