Behind the public pool in my town is a small service building with a brilliant red door. As I was walking yesterday, I noticed the wonderful shadows and colors cast on the off-white surface, and the strong contrast of the red door. I had a couple of hours before I had to be at the office so I rushed home and grabbed my set. It needs a little more detail and texture work. I may go back into it, or just leave it as the intended sketch and do a larger piece when I have more time.
And in other pool-related news, two weeks ago I had a chance to visit Naruto. I was lucky enough to stay in a beautiful hotel high on a mountain overlooking the sea. The most amazing part was the pool. Relaxing along the edge there was a perfect view down the sharp cliff to the small coastal town and the ocean where fishermen in small boats dropped their nets or their cages. I did a quick sketch from the balcony of our room.
