Two from Tenby, where I spent some blissfully vacant days sketching in the Summer. First a range of boats beached in the North Harbour at low tide, with an inquisitive pigeon exploring the seaweed. This was drawn on location, along with the key shading for the boats, but the colour was added later from memory; I’ve posted the uncoloured early version below for comparison. Then there’s a picture of the same boats seen from the opposite direction, while sat on a cafe terrace in one of the candy coloured buildings that appear top left in the first picture.

Beautiful sketches. I guess i love anything with boats and the sea. But the pigeon is a lovely detail you captured. And it adds scale 🙂
Thanks Ozge, I must remember to add foreground detail more often! Ed
