Pen and watercolour on paper
I did something different for the challenge today. Haven't sketched for a while and thought I would combine my beach visit with my painting obligation. That way I wouldn't feel such a time pressure while I was down there. I thought these beach-goers looked pretty settled in and I made a start on sketching. But I didn't judge things well and they began to pack up a few minutes later. I sketched as quickly as possible and did much of it from memory. But that is the fun of sketching on location - trying to capture people and things before they move.
The clouds were stunning and I hope to soon paint from some of the photo reference I took today.
This cropped picture of me isn't supposed to be artsy - it's just that I'm very bad at taking selfies!

After my lovely swim, I enjoyed freshly made sushi on the balcony for lunch - made by my husband! He is an expert at it!
