I am so grateful to live near the ocean and coastal rivers. Savannah has beautiful waterways and I often get away with my family in our camper to the beach or by a river.
Here is a selection of sketchbook drawings done from docks or fishing piers over the years. These were all done from direct observation. My favorite thing about drawing from direct observation is that the response to the subject being drawn is more emotional and the feeling of the space makes it into the drawing.
