Below is the memory sketch I sent Loriann, it's in pastel pencil just under A5 in size and is of one of my favourite places in the world. It's St. Ouens Bay in Jersey (Channel Islands - 14 miles off the coast of France although part of Great Britain) it's the island where I was born and raised. In the bay is a martello tower called La Rocco Tower, of which there are a number around the island that were used as defences.
The reflections of the tower in the wet sand are something that I've sketched and painted many times. This particular day stands out in my mind it was December and was really cold, all the colour had washed out and the beach was empty. Even though this is a place that I feel very connected to and a place that I have experienced a large number of times it was still very challenging to attempt to capture it with no references - not even a sketch.
Thank you Loriann for starting this challenge it's been really good fun.
