Day 16 – Thursday 20th December

A dry day forecast and apart from one afternoon heavy shower that was the case. There were reports of lots of visitors in Swanage for the Santa Specials on the Swanage Railway. Numbers at the beach huts varied.

My focus today was to add to the art on my new boiler suit / art suit. I had stopped yesterday because of a lack of ideas.

So today, I started with the chest pocket and drew some of my drawing tools with their lids on. Under the pocket flap the nibs of the pens were revealed and the lines that their marks make.

Then I added decorated christmas trees either side of the back design to indicate that it is a christmas event.

I then decided that a landscape would look good on the front and drew the view of Old Harry rocks and the southern side of Studland Bay. I added additional detail by extending the view to take in the WW2 fort on the rocks in Middle Beach.

I then decided to work on one sleeve. I have completed one side with the view of Peveril Point from Durlston Bay. The opposite side of the sleeve will be the view of Peveril Point and the pier from Swanage Bay. As the light went it was not clear enough to draw the pier which I will continue working on during Friday opening. I will wear the suit in whatever state of progress it has made on Saturday 22nd when we have local shanty men Kelp performing and the announcement of Artisan of the Year 2018 at 12 pm by the beach huts.
