A day at the beach with guest artist

Yesterday my boyfriend David and I went to the beach. When showed him something in my sketchbook, he snatched my pen and started to sketch himself :) so I took my other sketchbook and proceeded to paint.

David's drawing was that of a similar view, accompanied by a interesting looking spaceship:

Next, I did a sketch of a guy lying nearby, and after that David took the sketchbook again and drew a graffiti sketch allegedly saying "Nela".

While he was drawing the graffiti, I was sketching him:

Portrait watercolor sketch

Sketching him is always a pain because he won't stand still. But at least I was happy to share the fun of sketching with him for once :)

Today we went to the nearby mountain Učka, and after that sat down for a drink in a tavern. There I sketched this:

Fragments of Rijeka - back side door on Palazzo Adria and a winged lion on a portal done in ballpoint pen, and a Capuchin church window done in watercolor in a sketchbook. I did the window standing up and it was quite challenging to balance everything with one hand.

Urban and people sketching spree

Here are some of the sketches done in the past few days.
