This is my pencil drawing of driftwood on the beach and some gulls.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Penny, so did you take a photo to draw this from, or did you find the pic in a magazine? Or, did you draw it from real life?

The Rock at Torquay

by Lynn Kelly
(Portsmouth United Kingdom)


On a visit to Torquay I took a photo of this rock with just one Cormorant. It was some time later when I decided to sketch this but adding my own elements also. They were an extra Cormorant and Lighthouse in the distance to help with composition.

Fishing Village Amalfi Italy

This is a fishing village in Amalfi, Italy.

It is mountainous region with a little low land by water.

I just saw the picture and needed to sketch it. May turn it into a painting.

**Note from Kerry:
I am partial to pencil sketches but this would also look good in color. It's nice to hear from you again, Joe. I like your drawing!

Waves

by Jayne
(Adelaide, South Australia,Australia)


This is my first attempt at trying to draw waves / sea, after a lot of trial and error.

Any critique would be appreciated.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jayne
I think you've done a great job for a first attempt at waves. You improve with every drawing and I am sure you will learn a lot just by observing your own work.

To pass on some advice that I received once, it helps if you make the darks really dark so the water will stand out more against the rocks.

The fishing trip

by Sandra Busby
(East Sussex, England)

Fishing Trip Quick Sketch

Fishing Trip Quick Sketch

Having taken the advice of Kerry, I am now carrying a pocket sized sketch book with me almost everywhere! But, up to now, I have found that my 'sketches' always seem to look more like drawings and I really feel that I need to free them up and loosen my technique.

I decided to capture my son fly-fishing during a recent trip to Wales because although he would be moving, it would be only a little.

I gave myself one and a half minutes to capture the scene and I was pleased with what I got. I did shade in the hat which I admit, defeated the purpose, but other than erasing the unnecessary lines when I'd finished, I left it at that. So, I classed this as a proper sketch!

I took a photo of it in case I lost the book so I could put it on the site. As you can probably see, it was raining at the time and the drawing was wet!

When I got home, I showed my friend - who is a trained artist - my sketch book. She liked most of it, but she is very honest with me and remarked on this one that although I had captured this quickly, I had still thought about it too much.

I still have a lot to learn!

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Sandra, it takes a lot of practice to become adept at sketching from life. You are doing the right thing and you are mindful of what you have to achieve. Any artist will tell you it's a matter of doing it consistently.

You can use quick strokes like cross-hatching to indicate where you want shadows etc. Then, if you decided to build on the drawing once you got home, you have indicated which direction the light comes from.

Water

Even though my drawing isn't one of the best drawings i have ever done, i hope it's good enough to get onto this website!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Amanda, I love a confident artist! That tells me you have a bright artistic future ahead of you.

This looks like it's done in oil pastel, is that right?
