Some pieces of the beach taken home for a still life

beach finds (2)

A line drawing exercise of some things I picked up on Sotogrande beach this last weekend, as a still life. Note to self – sea holly is SHARP! Also, a handful of sand taken home to add to the background ends up EVERYWHERE….’Twaz fun though 🙂


She draws seashells on the seashore…


..what did I learn? Shells are NOT an easy option (and this is just a scallop- I think!) and you can’t draw every grain of sand on the beach… Yes, it is still summer here in Andalucia and so we are still lounging around on the sea shore. But I’ll get back to drawing the streets/calles of Jimena very soon 🙂
