Sketching in Huskisson – Day One

husky_beachThis is Huskisson Beach in the morning.  I have been on a sketching trip down the South Coast in the last few days. We left it until  after the school holidays so that we didn’t have to book accommodation before we went, so we could find something that suited when we got there. We found Huskisson absolutely perfect for our needs. We wanted scenery to sketch, have comfortable accommmodation and nice places to eat – all within walking distance. On the first morning we walked to the beach (five minutes), sat under the trees in the shade and I painted this watercolour of the beach.

Because I am currently using a sketchbook with toned paper, I took a different book this time. husky_beach_windyIt was a great choice – a brand new Stillman and Birn Delta Series seven inch square sketchbook with extra heavy weight paper.  It has the spiral binding so it was perfect in Huskisson when the wind got up in the afternoons.

The second sketch was done at the same spot, looking in the other direction,  across Jervis Bay. The wind has got up and  the sea looks quite different.
