|Sketch in coloured pencil and pen|
These sketches are from nearby Capo Zafferano, a gentle walk around a rocky peninsular inhabited mainly by gulls and somewhere I often go to sketch. This time I sketched the lighthouse first in pen and watercolour adding the coloured pencil at home. To get a good view I had to stand up and lean on the rock I've drawn above, not the most comfortable position!
I sat on the grass nearby to pack up my sketching kit then looked up and noticed how beautiful my rock looked against the blue of the sea. I'd already burnt my shoulders in the sun so I took a quick photo and drew that one at home.
At this time of year the grasses and wild plants have all gone to seed and become dry. I love all the different browns, yellows and golds against the turquoise blue of the sea. I gathered up a little treasure trove of seed pods, grasses and feathers to take home, now waiting to be sketched!
