Sketchcrawl at Revet

Yesterday was a great day at Revet, Simrishamn. The wind brought us some Caspian and one Yellow-legged gull, and several flocks of migrating Brant geese, Scoters and Eiders passed by. The moulting Eiders at the waterline made wonderful models and the chef at Röken made superb herring burgers. Thanks for a great day, Hans, Peter, and Gunnar!

Great sketch. In looking at your sketch work I've come to truly admire the economy of line. You never put in more than you need.

Thanks, Oscar! I think simplicity and economy of line or brushstroke are essential if you want your picture to tell a story. And without a story told, a painting or drawing is nothing.

By the way, I can't find your blog. I hope it's still there. I appreciate it a lot.

Thank you for the comment about my late blog. Too many things were happening that required my attention for the past year or so for me to devote time to it. This included the passing of my mother, a family friend, and the attendant things that one has to involve themselves in. My father needed to be pulled along as being a widower left him in despair (he's better now). I even had to have my terrier put to sleep because he was old and unable to continue.

But I'm ready to start a new one before the end of the month and when I do you are right on my list of those who will know it first.

I'm sorry about all those sad things happening in your life. And looking forward to following your new blog.
