Beside the sea #2

Some more from Easter at Aberporth in West Wales. People and dogs on the beach observed over 30 minutes (spot the soggy wet-suit walkers); a tractor pulling a boat out of the sea after the morning lobster-pot check; and fishing from the beach in the evening. I sketched some beach folk last year too, but used a brush for the more distant figures; using the pen encouraged me to start doing tiny contour drawings. The brown Kraft paper is great for beach sketching, that’s the background sorted
