Day 152, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

After a very wet night on this cold day it finally stopped drizzling to take a walk down on Kessingland beach. It was very dull without any breaks in the clouds and visibility was very poor. With the strong wind the waves were breaking well on the beach. I have included a few Sanderlings in the picture but in fact the flock was well over 50 birds.

Day 151, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

As I was down Ipswich way delivering paintings for the Suffolk Show art show at Trinity Park this coming Wednesday and Thursday I made a detour on the way home to Woodbridge where I sat and sketched the Tide Mill. I would have liked to spend longer on this sketch but it was cold blowy and drizzling and my chinagraph pencils were not ideal. On another day I would have added much more detail to the fishing smack “Good Intent” which was moored in front.
