For Week 11’s sketchbook assignment, I decided to draw the ocean by Caesar’s Bay and the Brooklyn Bridge. I chose these two locations because they were both tranquil and had differing tones to them. For the ocean, it was more peaceful to draw this scene because of the lack of noise and interruptions by the bay. I felt at peace drawing by the ocean, hearing the sounds of crashing waves, screeching gulls and the smell of the sea. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Bridge by Dumbo was much more bustling. The bridge stretched out all the way to Manhattan and drawing this reminded me a lot more of the rigidity of the city and the towering skyscrapers.
