Have sketch book, will travel

So I took my sketch book along on my trip this time. Can’t believe I have left it behind in the past years. What a joy to draw and paint at the beach. I can’t say I loved everything I painted on the trip, but what a fun way to experience the travels. The first day I sketched West Cliff in Santa Cruz—where the surfers hang out—when there are actually waves. There were none. No waves, no surfers. But there was a Jr. Life Guard camp going on…that was entertaining.

Watercolor. As you can see, I have a long way to go, but at least I spent the time and enjoyed the memory. Landscapes are not my favorite.

Watercolor. These were both quick watercolor pencil sketches based on my perspective at the time.

I also painted a picture for my new niece Marlo—whom I unfortunately did not get to meet yet. I forgot to take a photo of it, but it is a very special moment when I paint for a specific person. Love you Kayla and Marlo.

Part of the goal to keep on observing and creating. Will you take your sketch book with you on vacation this summer?
