Most recently, a beach artist – Claire Eason – spent six exacting hours sketching a 150-foot drawing of a surfer using a garden rake on a sandy beach – and though the sketch was only visible for a few hours before being washed away on the tide – thanks to the technology that created drones because everything been able to get captured on the camera attached to it!
55-year-old retired physician got help from a dozen of volunteers to create the eye-catching, heart-soothing, and breath-taking figure on the English coast of Beadnell Bay in Northumberland.
And, why would a physician hang up her stethoscope and start creating drawings on the beach you ask? Well, “The area has a lot of water sports all year round, and there are several surf schools…” the artist continues to answer.
“It always astounds me how vigorous these people are; they go out in the winter and oust the biggest waves. I thought it would be nice to do something to acknowledge the water sports there. Surfing is something I like because it is non-destructive to nature, and I like supporting an activity that has an eco-friendly feel to it.” Claire Eason answered. Noice.
Claire also mentioned that she had to wait until the tide had reached its peak and was on the way out to move fine damp sand!
The artist chose the perfect day for creating the designs on the sandy beach by analyzing the weather forecast – so then there would be no rainfall or storm to ruin everything for her.
So, what do you think of Claire’s drawing? Let us know in the comments below!
