Life's a Beach: The Siesta Key Drum Circle

DATELINE: SIESTA KEY.  Every Sunday evening, lightening and hurricanes permitting, the Siesta Key Drum Circle gathers to celebrate the sunset.  Last night was my first attempt the sketch the gathering.  The line drawing was done on location in the midst of the action; the watercolor was added the next day.  I'm looking forward to many more opportunities..
Trying to let the spirit move the pen...
Just another guy in the circle...

Sharing the sketch with Boomer, one of the dancers in the drawing.

This pretty well captures the flavor of the evening...see you next week!


  1. So summery. Our Spring has just got underway, with a slow start, but looking forward to moments similar to these on our side of the world!

  2. You really captured their movements!!! Great job!

  3. Great representation of the mood! I can feel the music :)

  4. If you fall within this category, you are definitely on the road to having a very well thought-out and carefully planned outdoor living space that is both functional and enjoyable. A wide range of options are available to you in terms of kitchen design and layout, as well as form and function, with a great deal of additional amenities. outdoor
