This was done with Copic Sketch markers and black Multiliner pen at Depot Bay on the Central Oregon Coast. Speaking of the Oregon Coast I'll teach a two day workshop on "Spirit of the Rough Sketch" June 27, 28, 2011 at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology near Lincoln City, Oregon. http://www.sitkacenter.org
