A watercolour and pen sketch of Broadstairs Pier this afternoon a problem with the little people and the long shed?
This watercolour and pen sketch of Broadstairs Pier suffered
a few problems of scale, it may have been the very hot night meaning that I am
a bit bleary today, or it may be related to nerves generated by sketching among
so many people.
I have only been doing a lot of field sketching outside in
high profile busy places for a relatively short period of time.
I think doing the people on the pier in pen and watercolour
and doing the people in the sea in just watercolour may have been a mistake
The is it sea or sky thing, no horizon was bordering
on an experiment.
Sandwich, coffee and view for a bit over £5 at Chiappinis which I think
collectively were worth it.
