I did this sketch from a digital photo I took a couple of weeks ago on Swansea Beach. The weather has changed radically since then, today’s walk was in brilliant sunshine, not like the wind and drizzle these poor tourists were putting up with.

It’s a useful exercise to draw from photos occasionally, to analyse the finer details and concentrate on composition and proportion, which isn’t usually possible with speed sketching. I used a set of graphite sticks in different grades into my A5 hardback sketchbook, across both pages.

    I love the simplicity and authority of this drawing.
