Beach Sketches

I've done a few pen sketches at the beach recently. I'm practicing my crowds and drawing directly in ink. These were done at Smith Point Park.

For this one I started with the large lady in the middle, got her half done and she went into the water. So I sketched the guy in front of her who now looks puny next to her. I finished her when she came back.


  1. I think your pen sketches look great! You don't need no stinkin' pencil! ;-)

  2. I had to laugh about the puny guy. He does look kinda little next to her, doesn't he? LoL That's ok though. You still did an awesome job on these sketches - way better than I could ever do. I really need to practice more. Did a sketch last night and tossed it.

  3. Joan, so many beautiful posts of late! You did such a great job with these pen sketches - makes me hanker for our summer ahead so I can sketch on the beach again.
    LOVE your lavender fields! The paper cups all look fantastic en masse and congratulations on your sales!
    The wedding photos are so beautiful! What a beautiful couple! Another lovely photo of you and your siblings too!

  4. Thanks, is so hard to give up the pencil. lol

    Sherry, thanks. He was small compared to her. Keep practicing!

    Thanks so much, Wendy!!! Life has been busy.
