Then, today, we had finally arrived at the beach (we borrow this beach apartment that has a pool as well). They were raring to go, so we hit the pool. I was in the sketching mood, so while my nephew watched over my daughter's ever more confident "swimming", I sat at a lounge chair, and sketched one of the scenes. She had a blast, yelling "Hey daddy, I can touch the bottom now!" I have no doubt she's going to be a good swimmer. Conquering fear is the first big step. This is definitively going to be a nice family weekend.
I'm sure her figure looks out of scale here, but I'm just trying to capture forms, not a photo-realistic rendering by any means. Thanks for checking out my impulsive sketches (nothing too unusual but still impulsive, trying to grab the moment like I'm using a camera again). There will be more during the weekend, I'm sure.
Have a great one!
