Just a quick blog today.
I find the idea of sketching sunbathers an excellent topic as they tend to stay still, which is an advantage for an artist.
The first pictures shows a couple we met on the trip to the west coast and enjoyed their company.
The second picture is a general picture around the pool.
Finally i looked up from sunbathing and the pool was empty, but all at once a group entered and stood at the deep end. This appeared to be because it was coming to the time for the evening meal and I wondered if they were just cooling off before going to get ready.
Because of the angle I was at I could only see their heads and it looked like seals or as Sue said just bobbing heads. It seemed quite surreal and I just had to capture the scene. Maybe it was too much sun influencing my vision.
I used to do a lot of these studies in the past and some of the paintings from these are in the Holidays page of this website.
