These are some sketches made during this weekend at the beach. It was very funny also because going to the beach to sketch to me is very difficult. Lot of people moving so you have to be fast, something that I'm not. And also you have to be discreet because some people feel like you are sketching some nude models here.

These sketches are taken on Saturday morning, we went to beach just for a couple of hours, before noon. Shiny weather and gorgeous water we have! I think I took all these sketches in less than one hour. The remaining time was spent floating into the water.

These other sketches I made on Sunday almost evening. We went with our two camping foldable chairs on the sand of another beach side just to see the sunset and to breathe the wonderful air and the wonderful light that only a sunset on the sea can give. I went almost blind but I was happy.

Probably the sunset to me are the most difficult subject to sketch. Right now I don't care, I was looking at the sun with my love in hand. And this sketch is a powerful remember.

Hope you will like all these sketches I shared with you. It's like sharing remembers chating with good old friends. :)

What great beach sketches!!! Did you do them directly in ink? I love some of the poses, especially the guy leaning on the rocks in the skimpy (for American standards) suit. Love these!!!

Wonderful beach sketches. That's what sketching is about, capturing the moment, or color, or light. It's not a perfect drawing, it's a sketch.

Sometimes I sketch straight in ink with my fountain pen. Sometimes I go first with pencil to draw the masses or some more if I feel unsecure. then I go for ink.
Thanks!

That's true. I can add that the perfection of the sketch is "not being perfect" altough if I look the Leonardo sketches...:lol: In italian we use to say also "non finito", not finished, that add more without leaving the imagination.

Thanks a lot for the appreciation :wave:

In reality it was only one dog moving like quicksilver. This dog for what I obserevd was really smart dog, without no fear to go in the sea to play.
Always running. Very funny!
