Beach Cottage Study

This is a quick pencil study of a beach cottage at the access to Ballston Beach in Truro, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Ballston Beach lies at the end of the winding, residential Pamet Road, backed by the golden hills that inspired Truro artist Edward Hopper. The lighting and colors were beautiful and I can see why Hopper and so many other artists are inspired by the Cape. Koh-I-Noor 4B solid graphite pencil in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
