View Full Version : Sketching on the beach in late afternoon.

In these times we are going to the beach quite late in the afternoon. My wife actually cannot afford to go in the warmest hour of the day.
The most important matter is that she is fine and we can go at the seaside at almost any hour we want. That's fine.

Here some sketches. I admit that almost always, the first sketches in every session are like a warm up. I think I will try to change this habit, trying to have the 100% since the first line I draw. but in my hopinion it's like Zen and I hope to have plenty of life to master that... :)

I started with these two sketches, signs of cute little life around me full of saturated colors.

The I realized there was a skinny mother near us, watching out the baby daughter near the shores. The day was very warm and windy so the sea was wavy, not calm.

I ended the session with my favourite subject. My wife. She was not sketching this time, but she was enjoyng doing nothing but relaxing and some crocheting.

And I always remain amazed by the hands while working to crochet. They go at the speed of the light even if you're not an expert and it's very hard to comprehend (at least to me) how they works, and how they move. So it's difficult to catch that "spark" that makes that moment you draw something interesting. I hope I realized it.

Hope you like them!

Welcome. . . lovely drawings / paintings, I especially love the ones of people. Beautiful lines and wonderful rich color. Did you make the sketchbook yourself? I checked out your blog also and admire your recent sketches done on cardboard box!

Thanks, too much!

Boxing paper is nice idea, I just need a thicker cardbox as cover...

I usually buy sketchbook, and sometimes I do my self with a sort of steampunk binding.
Other times I buy a larger sketchbook and I cut it in some more handy smaller sketchpads :)

Welcome! These are lovely sketches setting the scene. Agree with you watching hands crochet. And many people do so without even looking at their work - amazing!
