We spent the last four days at the marina. There are no sketches of boats but I found a tree!
The initial sketch was a continuous line drawing in my small sketchbook. I came back to the location later, pulled out my sketching stool which immediately sunk into the ground and then fought off wasps as I painted a palm tree!
The following are two continuous line sketches of my husband and myself. I really liked how these turned out.
Next I went to Starbucks just inside Target. This is my catch them quick location! I started off with Platinum carbon pen however that was not working for me. The pen was good but I was fussing too much with details. Although I loved the stance of this gentleman at the counter.
I decided to work with a Pentel Aquash brush pen with light black ink giving less details.
This capture is my favorite!
I came away from the day feeling disappointed. There were too many backs of people and it is a fast location. So I tend to jump from person to person without including some of the surroundings. So I need to give some thought to perhaps a different location or to slowing down as I sketch to catch more.
