If our last beach outing was overcast and damp then yesterday’s visit was the complete opposite. Clear sunny skies with a stiff breeze and plenty more people on the beach. We put the Sand Palace up and sitting in its shade, used our lunch break to do some sketching (myself, my partner and another friend) – that is of course after we scoffed our fish and chips.
My partner spotted this entertaining sight further up the beach. This man was getting shade from an umbrella that he clearly had given up trying to keep the the right way out.
Things closer to hand were a pair of thongs
and some seagulls (Silver Gulls if I’m being correct).
Last but not least I just squeeked out two quick watercolour sketches of people standing on the water’s edge, just before we headed back into the water for another swim.
I like them all – especially the gestural lines with quick dollops of colour of ‘watching, surf beach’.
Thanks. It’s often the fast ones when I’m not thinking too hard that turn out the best.
