On Friday, our Contemporary Quilt (CQ) Kent meeting was hosted by Glenys in Deal . We spent the morning discussing what we'd seen at Knit and Stitch , sharing what we were working on and in some cases seeking advice where we'd got stuck. After lunch , the blustery weather had improved, the sun was shining and we headed down to the beach to take photographs and draw
Several rusty artefacts including this anchor
Mostly we were mesmerised by the sea crashing onto the shore- I did a couple of very bad watercolours trying to capture the colours and of course added to my stone collection.
The black tideline was burnt and charred wood and I collected some of the drier bits to draw with , I loved the lines of the improvised slipways made of timber
'Charcoal' drawings of the tideline and slipway and some bladderwrack.
The sea itself left the loveliest marks on the sand and stones.
