Work In Progress - The Christmas Day Swim at Eastbourne
All drawn up in pencil
inked in and the pencil rubbed off
At last some colour!
Here are the next stages on my Eastbourne Christmas picture. I worked all over the scene in pencil. When I was reasonably happy with my drawing I inked it in. Lovely to remove all the smudgy pencil marks! Now I have a nice clean surface ready to paint. I used some blue mask to splatter snow in the sky and to preserve a few other areas. It was a bit too fiddly to paint around that plane trail!
Then the fun begins with my first wash of the end of the day sky. Next, the sea!...
