Stand Up Paddleboarder Riding the Waves

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.

Kitesurfing at Emma Wood State Beach

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.

Tropical Storm Rosa Brings the Surf to Ventura

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.

Riding the Waves in Ventura, Ca - Surfer Art

I’m taking up the inktober 31 drawing challenge to do a drawing a day for 31 days. And here is today’s drawing. I live only a couple of blocks from the beach and Ventura’s “C" Street break. My studio is even closer, it is only natural I would draw a surfer.

Live Action of Surfer Riding a Wave

I live only a couple of blocks from the beach and Ventura’s “C" Street break. My studio is even closer, it is only natural I would draw and paint surfers. This is a preliminary ink drawing for future artwork.
