I had the opportunity to spend 4 wonderful days visiting my girl Amy in San Diego, California. I drove south on a sunny afternoon and enjoyed a few days of shopping, going to the SD Art Museum in Balboa Park and having a languid lunch over sangria and blood orange cosmopolitians at El Prado. It's difficult to get sketching time in when with a non artist. Rudy is always patient with me but the girl wants to move on. But I managed to get in this quick sketch of the Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park. While sketching the organist was practicing and it was so delightful to be drawing and listening to a private little concert! At home I dropped in the watercolour and added a bit of zinc white and rich gold gouache.
The two hour drive home today was in a heavy rain that made the roads slick and dangerous. No sunshine in southern california today. I have a most busy week but will dedicate some time to browsing the blogs and see what you all have been up to!
