Good sketch David

Thank you Heather, would have liked to have longer to get the tones correct, but a barbecue was imminent!!!

A sketch with a story! Well done, David.

Yes, lovely sketch David, sketching outdoors is something I find very satisfying.

Yes enjoyed this sketch as had to start with the washing so as to leave the white sheets etc and put tone around to show them up.

Love this sketch David and its accompanying narrative.

Really good sketch David that has captured that moment well.

Thank you everyone for your very kind comments.........happy painting and sketching.

Terrific sketch David, will you make it into a painting? I rather like the whiteness of the washing against the darker tones of the background……would look good in watercolour.

Yes i might Fiona, as the seaside colours of the cottages were lovely, but i particularly liked the white washing!!!

This is so good David, a beautiful sketch.

A quick 1 Hour sketch with just a 4B pencil. The occupants of the houses hang their washing on the washing lines on the shore. Often it is gathered in when the tide is in so boots are required. Our son was holidaying in the cottage with the unbrella. This image is from the quay which extends out into the estuary. The tide was out as a lady hung out her washing!!!
