Seaburn seascape

September 20, 2011

I went for a walk along the beach at Seaburn yesterday. It was blustery and looked like rain, so I took some reference pics and brought them back home to work on a pencil sketch. Here is the result.

My pencil sketch of Seaburn seascape

At first I wondered how such a scene would lend itself to a pencil treatment; watercolour would have been much simpler in terms of covering the large areas of cloud, sea and sand. I have to say that I was reasonably satisfied with the result. I have it in my sketch book to take along to my drawing class tomorrow morning.

Tonight I have a SL gig at The Haus and I need to run through a couple of songs for that now. Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
