The view of the sunset over the sea from our windows was spectacular :) These are some quick sketches done from the window and the one above is trying to catch the pattern of the clouds and waves - they changed so fast and the light was going, so I didn't attempt to use colour. They are all in my moleskine sketchbook - which was only added to my art bag(s) as an afterthought because I'd planned to work larger. I made notes to myself of the colours so that if it develops into a painting I'll remember them.
This one is much the same view but showing the edge of 'our' garden and some people on the beach for scale - they should have been slightly smaller but the pencil wouldn't cooperate!
I think between sketches I did, the watching I did and the zillions of photos in all sorts of light, I ought to have enough information to get some large/largeish paintings done :)
please keep telling me about your special places :) ..... mmmm geographical ones! that statement could be better phrased!
