Low tide at “C” Street beach in Ventura. You don’t see it often - people riding a bike on the beach, or, in this case walking his bike on the wet, compact sand.
On the promenade the City of Ventura provides a shower for the surfers and swimmers to rinse off the saltwater from their wetsuits and boards. The homeless use the showers also.
The local schools are out for fall break. On the Ventura boardwalk or promenade this young skateboarder was taking a break to watch the surfers st “C” Street.
This”stand up” paddle boarder was taking a nice ride in the soft surf just past “C” Street but before the point. Temp today 74 degrees and sunny and almost everyday there is some wind. Into the studio and some painting for the rest of the day then home for the World Series. Check out some of my baseball drawings on my feed I’ve been doing about the World Series. I don’t think my wife appreciates me watching sports in the evening. The series will be over shortly my sweetheart. As I am a sports artist I am suppose to keep up on these things.
Although I want the Dodgers to win in tonight’s World Series game I look forward to watching pitcher Craig Kimbrel of the Boston Red Sox come in as a relief pitcher. I enjoyed watching Craig pitch last night. He has such an unusual stance for pre-pitch stare for the catcher’s signals. Kimbrel said he used to keep his arm behind his back, but that became too painful when he had biceps tendinitis. So he started holding it out to the side. .
I dew on my iPad while watching the first game of the World Series. Top of the second inning Dodgers Matt Kemp hits a solo home run over the Green Monster. It was a good start for the Dodgers but their defensive playing did not hold up through the game.
This scuba diver headed towards the water while his partner was already in the surf off of one of the jetties near Sanjon Road in Ventura. It seemed to be an odd place for divers to go although the other diver had a spear for fishing.
Yasiel Puig hits a three-run scoring home run to deep left center to give the Dodgers a 5-1 lead over the Milwaukee Brewers. This will probably hold up for the win and a trip to the World Series. This is a second drawing today of the inktober 31 day drawing challenge to do a drawing a day for 31 days. All the other drawings are on paper but I am watching the Dodgers / Brewers 7th game and thought I would try a drawing on my IPad.
Kitesurfer. Emma Wood State Beach. This beach is just a little further up from surfer’s point and the river mouth. The wind is a bit better there for kite surfing.
When on the beach in Venice Ca. A few weeks ago I noticed that the LA County lifeguard towers are different than the lifeguard towers in Ventura Co. This tower is at the Ventura pier. You can see the difference if you look st my earlier drawing post a couple of weeks ago.
This ”stand up paddle boarder was walking along the promenade just past “c” Street heading out for a nice day in the soft surf. Temp today 75 degrees and sunny with light wind. Another day in paradise with few people out. Mid work week does keep the amount of people at the beach down - although this is part of my work. I guess I shouldn’t call it that.
Here is a group of young surfers all entering the water at the same time at Surfers Point,Ventura, Ca. Small swell today and with those Santa Ana winds blowing offshore. Beautiful day if you like 80 degrees and sunny and being at the beach.
Good surf is still available at Ventura’s “C” Street and “Surfers Point”. And with that comes more surfers and lifeguards. As my studio is not too many blocks from these locations it is natural to draw my times on the beach.
Tropical Storm Rosa has brought good surf to Ventura’s “C” Street and “Surfers Point”. And with that comes more surfers and lifeguards. As my studio is not too many blocks from these locations it is natural to draw my times on the beach.
Today the surf is a little bigger and better than yesterday and I was able to get down to “C” Street early and walked up to Surfers Point. They were having a local surfing contest so there were quite a few good surfers.
Surf’s up a bit at “C” street this morning running 3 to 4 feet and supposed to be a little higher this afternoon. Also it should be a little bit bigger tomorrow morning and I will go down for the early morning light. I live only a couple of blocks from the beach and Ventura’s “C" Street break. My studio is even closer.
When on the beach in Venice Ca. I noticed that the LA County lifeguard towers are different than the lifeguard towers in Ventura Co. This tower is at the Venice breakwater.
