I went to the Wellington Sketchers meetup for the Worldwide Sketchcrawl #41 and spent a lovely morning sketching with Jon, while my kids played on the beach. I was so glad that the weather turned out so well and that I came out to sketch this morning.
Days Bay Jetty
We sat on the jetty sketching and this was a great place to be: I could have drawn things from here all day. I sketched one of the houses across Days Bay. I think this was the first time I did a whole sketch with my watercolor pencils on location, so that worked well.
There were a few fisherman on the end of the jetty, who are always great to sketch because you can often get a whole stance sketched before they move again.
The seagulls put on quite a performance for us, as they fought over titbits thrown to them by the fishermen. I think we saw the full gamut of seagull communication this morning.
Last weekend, I made some pencil rolls for my watercolour pencils and they worked a treat today. Nothing blew away in the breeze, and I could see what colours I had on hand.
