Sand Beach Ébauche, day 1

I was all set to start a new drawing this morning but ended up heading out to Sand Beach to work up the preliminary layer of a small oil painting, a study for a larger piece. Today I felt an overwhelming urge to put the brush and turpentine into play, putting the pencils aside for a while.
