I love daylight savings! It's 5:33pm and still bright outside, still lovely as it was when I was at Cottesloe beach earlier today. More hours of sunlight for me to enjoy!

So, some pencil/charcoal sketches. Next time I'm bringing a freakin' pencil sharpener.

I think the guy caught on that I was drawing him. I felt like a perv! (Pencil)

I would like to bring some colour next time so I can attempt to capture choppy water better...well, more interestingly. (Compressed charcoal)

Amy's legs! Quickly done. Couldn't be bothered drawing the sand.

These people were in my line of vision for about 30 seconds, maybe less! The lady was walking away from me towards the shore, and the guy stood still before moving off with his body board. Pencil, 2B/8B.

Amy, who sat still for about 5 minutes. A rather unfantastic drawing. I'm glad I tried outlining her first with willow charcoal because I started too high up on the page and was able to move the whole image down. Sometime during this, the wind picked up my little stub of willow charcoal and blew it away! Filled in with compressed charcoal when I got home.

One thing (re)learned today is that I don't draw small so well.

Haha! Wow, we share a lot of things in common! Drawing on the beach, can't draw small terribly well, and a love for charcoal! Wonderful little renditions here =D I'm especially fond of of the guy who noticed you were drawing him.

If you're interested in color, I've always played around with watercolors at the beach. They've never really been good, but it's fun to play with, and they're easy to carry to boot.

Man, I wish I could hit a beach right now without freezing my tail off.

I'm glad to know it's not just me! Thank you, Kell. =D

Ah, I might give that a shot! Acrylics are hard to cart around. It occurs to me that I don't have a watercolour pallete, but I have watercolour pencils and some weird ones in a tube. I fail at watercolour though. ^__^

You'll have the best time come the middle of the year. =D I've waited for so long to hang out at the beach~
