Sea Gazing and Drawing

One of the things I like about being near the sea, is being able to just look at the sea. Here in Margate the new steps by the harbour are a good place to just sit and watch the waves. 

On the Harbour Arm you can also watch the waves breaking on the walls, and if you are not quick enough, get sprayed by the incoming waves too.

There is something quite meditative and absorbing gazing on the sea, with the continuous movement of waves forming and dissolving. I find my mind moves with this rhythm and opens to the experience.

This week I sat on the steps and with a fine liner pen traced the movements of the waves on the sea.

It's something that I want to do more of, maybe with a few different colours.
