More sketches from the island...

Ah... my favourite island! 
I did a pencil sketch of a fishing boat as it moored up to the jetty and later, a sketch of the dive school.
 
I became totally absorbed in the details in the windows. It really can't be called a sketch at all - perhaps a 'mini drawing'.
 
I took the opportunity to draw it whilst we were waiting for Charlie to come back from a dive, which he was doing as part of his PADI course. It was lovely just relaxing on the jetty in the sun, scribbling away!

I had just about finished when the heavens opened and a tropical rain storm hit. We had to run back to our hut and I had my sketchbook stuffed under my tea-shirt hoping it wouldn't get wet!

A few days later I took my chance and managed to get this sneaky sketch of a woman enjoying a cold drink beside the pool. Unfortunately she left before I had finished so I had to use my memory again to finish it off. I wasn't particularly happy with this one, it has to be said! I'll blame the beverage I was drinking at the time!

This is really a place for colour. The next time we visit, I plan to use plenty of it!

There is no doubt that photographs are something to treasure, but looking through sketches and drawings of special places is equally special.

  1. Those are beautiful sketches! I always love looking at sketchbook studies. Each of your sketches is lovely and so different from each other. I think the one of the woman with the drink is my favorite, although I also love the dive school. . . and the boat :) I can't pick a favorite :)
