We ended the first day of the new year at Carmel Beach. I made two quick sketches as the sun went down. The figures are in ink and the landscape is watercolor. Lots of sand-on-my-book involved in the process, also, some permanent sand in my palette. Ah well.
On our very last day we stopped by Monterey. This is a little cove just off Cannery Row at high tide. Later in the day, the beach was packed with tidepoolers.
Sketchbooking on the go is fun, but I don’t always finish what I started. But that’s okay with me. A half-done spread in itself is a record of how hungry we all were and how quickly we ate, I guess.
