Daily Sketch #19: Pointe Du Hoc

IMG_3160

Got behind with posting, so playing catch-up for a couple days and the memory on some of the details are hazy.

This is the Normandy coast, from Pointe Du Hoc looking east. It’s a very moving place. If the sheer historical value of the place doesn’t grab you, the pill boxes and pockmarked landscape of D-Day bombs will. Words cannot express my gratitude and respect for the actions and bravery delivered by the Allies in this part of the world. An unfortunate time with a fortunate outcome.

As for the sketch, its lacking. I’m not sure how to sketch the cliffs, but I know part of the problem is too much detail and trying to be to realistic with the textures of the rocks. I’ll get it right at some point, but today wasn’t the day.
