Hello! and sketch

Hello everybody! I didn't know that this forum exists. I paint in watercolor and draw in ink, normally all together. And I like to do sketches in my sketchbooks when I travel or go to the mountains. I'll love to see your works and show some of mines.
I post here one that I did in the delta of Ebro River. It was late summer and lots of mosquitos. There were people in the beach looking for seafood. Ink and watercolor

Re: Hello! and sketch

Great painting! Is that size in centimeters or inches? If that's in inches, it's huge. I love the rich colors, strong values and beautiful textures you achieved in this scene. I also like the fat seafood gatherer for not being physically perfect -- great shading and rounding on the body. Well done!

Thank you Robert! It is in centimeters, a little one.

That's a terrific sketch! I like your figures - you really nailed the action. I smiled at the "chubby" guy up front too.

Welcome, dolors! This forum is fairly new, but is already getting a lot of great journals to follow along. Very nice first post, and hope to see more.

Wonderful pen and watercolour sketch. I love the large man gathering seafood as well.

Hello Dolors! This is a wonderful watercolor and ink sketch. I love the scene and you did a great job of handling it. I can feel the summer heat and almost want to slap at the mosquitos! Nice work!

Dolors I love your pen and wash work, so I will enjoy seeing your sketchbook! Must admit, I too had a chuckle looking at the belly on the main figure - you captured the light to describe it so well!!!

Thank you for your comments. Another one of the beach, but this was done in winter.

Wow. The textures in this one are fantastic. I love those clouds, the clouds are gorgeous. Excellent loose strokes on the fisherman, that's so simple and so effective. Great near vegetation too. I like how you leave these sparkles of white to give everything so much contrast, it's great.
