VSW: Capetown South Africa Beachwalk, 2

W16 5 30 VSW CAPETOWN 003
Necessity is the mother of fast sketches.

I barely finished these by the end of our month on Capetown!

I used a water-soluble graphite fat pencil
and splashed watercolors over the sketches. 
From beginning to end in about 15 minutes each!

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together.  Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.

I also created an accompanying Flickr group!
