A day at the beach

Last week I had a day at the beach with my cousin. Despite heavy drizzle when we left Herefordshire we had a dry day at the coast, with a bit of sunshine for an added bonus!

We picnicked at Borth beach - and I sketched

Drawn in black ink and then coloured using brush pens (black and grey) and coloured pencils.

Later we went to Ynyslas and I drew again there, looking over towards Aberdovey.

Before we left I also did a speedy sketch of a couple sat in their deckchairs near us. I love the challenge of drawing people quickly - I used to draw people as they walked down a short section of pavement that I could see from my house when I lived in Shrewsbury! I only had about 30 seconds to capture them on paper before they went out of view so it was a speedy exercise!

I forgot to take a photo of my sketch of the couple in their deckchairs.
