Empty beaches aren’t great for people sketching, that’s for sure. But I’ll take a safe, well-distanced beach over drawing people for now.
Late in the evening last week, we drove to a deserted beach north of Davenport on the California Coast. Thank goodness for the long days: we got there as people left but there was still lots of light.
Can you tell I was a little over-eager in pulling up the masking tape I used to divide up this page?
Just one little page in a Hahnemühle watercolor book and then we headed back. But I was happy to be out, have the wind in my face and sand on my page. And in my palette. It doesn’t feel like summer without sand in my palette.
ps: No beachtime this week here in California. Our numbers have spiked and beaches are closed. Stay home, stay safe.
