Two sketches from under the walls of the port. I was off the boat for a couple of days. While I was having a beer, a few marker pen sketches were produced. Again rarely miss the chance of quick drawing plein air.
These sketches were produced as a teaching aid, prior to a month long cruise in the Med. I was to show students how a location sketch could be developed. Changing medium, composition, tone, colour and even the time of day. Drawing techniques were also to be discussed. Teaching on a cruise requires as much flexibility of style as possible, allowing for very variable levels of ability.
The Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition runs until 10 October.
