During my last trip to the Frisian islands at the coast of North Germany I rediscovered the combination of pencil/gouache sketches. These are primarily for exploring the shapes of clouds and different formats. Unfortunately after drying the values had always changed but these sketches are more about playing anyway.

Sometimes I add further gouache layers to work out the values. The sketches shown below are from a different part of the island.
