St. John USVI Sketchbook Part 05

This set of sketches from the beach reminds me of many things.

First, the weather is rarely what you expect.  Also, it's worth taking the moment to write down funny things you hear other people say!

Both landscapes and close-ups, even on the same page, are fun to include.

People on the beach are just fascinating.  And they move a lot more slowly than people in "normal" life, so it's easier to draw them.

Talking to people can get you good recommendations, especially for food.  We tried out the restaurants this woman told us about and they were great.

Funny thing:  I drew her while she talked to us, and I don't think she even realized it.  This is a partial blind contour and came out really well.
