Sketching camping sea sun nature day three
Camping sun sea sketching nature and so forth on day three. I can change this terms but the overall substance remains the same. Nothing more than relax for us, for my love, and for the next project coming soon.
I was reading again earlier posts and probably I’m writing too much of my love and our days passed together rather than writing in more focused posts about sketching, drawing, doodles, colors, art, etc. But what can I say, she’s my muse and my first fan so everything I’m doing now is thanks to her…
So today was another boiling hot day, and was so difficult to make some drawing or sketching. I did it late in the morning and only when we went to the beach leaving the pine tree forest here. Tomorrow we will have probably some lovely friends as guests, I hope to make some doodles at least and to have some time to make some sketches, even one should be enough to shut my thirst! 🙂
In few words here, near the beach, but all over the camping that is literally on-the-sea, there is full of plants called “macchia mediterranea”, something like mediterranean spots. Near the beach there are a lot of perfumed plants like rosemary (my favourite), juniper, thyme, myrtle (second in place over my favourites for a hair) and a lot more. I grew into these kind of plants scratching me to harvest the myrtles to make a delicious liquor (mirto), family recipe and national liquor from Sardegna, since my mother is from Sardinia.
Sorry for the bad quality but all pictures in camping are taken under the low light of an old mechanic light and under the camping light. Not the optimum for showing to people.
These are two of the myrtle sketching. Probably under the sunlight they will pop up more colors.
And so some sketching made on the beach, one is more than a doodle because I was passing the time chatting and talking with her, in the meantime I was trying to study some figures while doodling and sketching. I took all these sketches only with my Pilot V-Pen for a later coloring, still undecided if I have to do so.
I made the other sketches as usual with my workhorse Lamy Safari fountain pen filled with Platinum Carbon Ink and with my Winsor&Newton watercolors over SeaWhite of Brighton pocket sketch pad and journal.
Hope you enjoy!
