CQ Kent: Sketching in Deal

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 

 Quite a few fishing boats and lobster pots ( although not as many as in the past)

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.
