Mar de Cristal

by gordonmichaelsutton

I’d spotted this view driving the hire car over to Mar de Cristal, near La Manga in southern Spain last summer. Figured it would make an interesting place to draw.

Took myself over there late in the afternoon. The sun was still scorching and the ground was parched. In the distance, a herd of goats was kicking up a dust storm. Wispy clouds dotted the big blue sky and no hint of a breeze.

This was the end result. A sketch in pencil and charcoal. Basis for a painting maybe, although clearly no threat to David Hockney just yet.

    Good sketch. I hope you paint it.
