A couple years ago, my sister and I (and the families) vacationed at the Outer Banks, NC. It was the best vacation ever. Whenever I see this image (by Emerson Quillin, purchased here), it reminds me of that week at the beach - away from work and the daily grind -- just relaxing with my sister in the sun. It's time for another beach trip for sure. I used a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils to color the image and I used a mixture of acrylic white paint and flock to make the foam on the waves. I love how that turned out!
