This week I've been sketching at the beach. In Massachusetts we have beaches on our lakes as well as the ocean, and there are several near my house. I'm pretty sure the sand is imported, but people still love to sunbathe and then run into the water to cool off.
I think this lady was reading a book, which gave me enough time to do a quick sketch. Today I tried some water color and gouache on a similar figure. More experimenting needed there.
