Margaret Shaw - Artwork - Wip Beadnell Beach

Thought that these 3 photos taken on Beadnell Beach may make a good tryptich.
Whilst away I'd completed a small water soluble pastel sketch which I quite liked
but wanted to change the composition and add more white.

I played about with art grid and came up with this composition.
Which I've made a good start on as this small pastel piece.  Which is at the refining stage.

1st Picture completed

2nd picture - pastelling underway with work to do on making the sky more blended,
less stripey and catching the highlights.

After a few more pastel sessions, finished these small pictures - 7.5 x 5.5 inches / 19.5 x 14.5 cm. 
I do like the concept of these, but the size has restricted what I'd really like to do with them. 
The small pictures will be used as sketches / references to work some bigger pieces
and will have more consistency in colour.
