It's not that I didn't want to draw the horizon line or any other details of the sea or the sky - it's just that I didn't have enough tranquility to do so (a day on the beach with family - I stopped when my 3-year-old son just decided to jump up from the towel to return into the water alone again...).
But looking at it now, I think I should have stopped at that very moment anyway: It seems to be one of those drawings where Wolfgang Schmitz would have said that in a certain moment, you have to take away the pen from the drawer – to avoid that he worsens his drawing. "Stop – don't touch it any more!"
Indian ink, ca. 15 x 21 cm / 6 x 8¼ in.
