Logs and Dogs

Thanks daylight savings. I no longer need to negotiate between my mundane, indoor obligations in the middle of the day for a hit of sunshine and fresh air. By the time dinner is over, I can still go out for a walk by the water and watch the sun slowly dip into the sea. Clouds turn wild colours, islands loom in the distance.

I went down the other evening in attempt to sketch some drift wood and sun-bleached roots. Some super happy dogs ran onto the beach and I watched them for a long time. I recorded their crazy squiggling in the water and sand until it got dark.


  1. so awesome! I love the second image - it's such an honest sketch the way the logs are still and rendered more fully, and the dogs are quick and gestural.

    (this is joelle, I just didn't sign in.)

  2. Thanks Joelle! Yeah, I was committed to the log, but then the dogs came into my view and were running around totally distracting me. Bless 'em.

  3. These are great sketches. I love the second image too.
