A sketch that become art

At home I wanted to paint that beautiful summer day witch the project Day at the beach is about. At the same time I wanted to learn more about painting realistic and colorful figures of wild nature and humans.

I took a paper and started to find basic lines of shadows and lights. I wanted the girl in the front to look back to past and reversed the picture vertically.

Finding the delicate lines of the shadows was so satisfying that I switched pencil to a marker pen. This is how sketch for a painting become art on its on. This is also the first only black ink piece of art in my collections.
