I went out a little earlier tonight, around 6.00pm. My two drawings were larger today, I gave myself more time to think about them – it was lighter and I was within sight of other people on the beach. I noticed such things as the difference between drawing in damp sand, and in sand that was waterlogged but not quite underwater. In the first, sand is tossed up like a ploughed furrow, in the second the line melted back into the ground slightly, the edges smoothed out. I must take care with my footprints, try not to disturb the sand too much. As I gain confidence about drawing my pathways, I must take care with the lines themselves, consider each one. I tried using both ends of my stick, one was thicker than the other and made a deeper mark. Perhaps I could stamp the marks into the sand?
The sinuous line is more interesting than the straighter one.
