Week 21, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Late evening on Southwold beach

A sultry evening with this sketch being finished at about 8:30 and the temperature still being 19C. An evening with a beautiful light although fading gradually. After a week  and especially a day of painting for the Suffolk Show a late last minute sketch where I have to confess I needed an uncomplicated subject. Having said that the light was so special a complicated landscape was not required.
