Sketching camping sea sun nature day two
Camping sea sun nature and sketching day two.
Today was definitively a better day for many reason. Yesterday night was a really fresh night and so we had a great rest from the heat of the day. And today is the same. we are chilling under the moon and the stars.
This day was also very positive for sketching. Today we dressed our folding camping table, full of colors, many pads and liters of water to drink. Although the hot weather we tried today to have fun. This is the picture of the table dressed with the classical checkered towel, and full of art materials. Please notice on the lower corner the device for my rhinitis. Please also note in the other corner one of the great sketching of my love, I like a lot her way to make joyful and a happy journal for the baby. She likes to use a lot of colors.Today sketching was like being subwater holding the breath from one wash to another…
I started sketching our orange gas lamp, a great camping classic, stuck on the tree in front of our tent, under the pine. And I did it as warm up on my pocket SeaWhite of Brighton sketch pad. I went straight in ink and watercolor.
Then I realized that probably is better to enlarge the focusing range and to include the main view in front of me, and some more as you can see here: even the beach towels are main characters in my sketching. I realized that probably this one shows better our feeling here in the camping. It took a lot of time, but I’ve no rush and I’m on vacation so time well spent with my love, with the birds tweeting and the lizards hunting ants.
I sketched also some more things, pine cones, lizards, and some were so ugly… Nad also some in the beach just before the sunset. Ok not every sketching goes okay… But I had as always a great time with my love and with my self. And also as Danny Gregory says “please DO waste art materials”: I did it.
I used some of best watercolors available, my favourite Platinum Carbon Ink, my Faber-Castell pencils, my Lamy Safari is well used.
Yes, bread crumbs of happiness. At least for us.
