Sketching the bay


Well the drawing lessons have been running for a few weeks now but I’ve been unhappy with my output from them. Maybe it was time to get out from the classroom into the great outdoors and draw what I wanted instead. It was dull and a bit damp when I arrived at the bench I’d selected to sit on. Thankfully it wasn’t damp enough enough to wet the paper, while I spent the best part of 2 hours sketching.  Funny how stiff you get just drawing!  Good job it’s not an Olympic sport.

For the uninitiated I’m holding my sketch in front of the subject, which is the bay near my home.
