Norwegian Sketchbook - Water

Norway (7) With rain, husband and child, I didn't find so many opportunities to sketch 'live' in Norway.  It always seems to me that I should be drawing 'the real thing' while I can, but more often I found myself looking at things to remember them, and trying to figure out how I might draw them later.  It's quite liberating to throw the 'observational Norway (6) drawing rulebook' out of the window and experiment with drawing from memory and imagination!  One day, I was at Kinsarvik and tried to figure out just how to make water 'move'.  I did a few quick drawings out, and a few more quick experiments that evening.  Not there yet - this is a challenge to explore further!
