Playa del Rey SkyDigital Illustration
This is a personal project of mine–pretty much a study in clouds. This was the view from our apartment in Playa del Rey, California looking slightly southwest. Our apartment was separated from the ocean by a little over a block. In between, there is a fairly large ancient sand dune that we overlooked. Even though we couldn’t see the ocean itself from our balcony, we witnessed the most spectacular sunsets on a nightly basis. On extremely rare occasions, we got huge billowy storm clouds. I was lucky to capture this picture back in 2012.
The setting sun blacked out the east side of the dune–resulting in the above illustration.
I am quite partial to this as it was my first attempt to digitally portray clouds.
