Last day of the school holidays and I thought it would be perfect to spend an afternoon at Steephill Cove and have a much needed ice cream.
I took my massive watercolour pad with me so this is one which will take a while to complete but here are the preliminary sketches in the meantime. I have done a couple of crops so you can see the detail too, bit by bit I will draw in pen over the pencil taking care to retain the character and rub the pencil out (and remove any mistakes).
As usual I took a lot of reference photographs to work from which turned out to be a good thing as the tide was moving really quickly. I ended up with all my possessions balanced on surrounding rocks and waves splashing my paper – the sky wash will be fairly interesting!
