I flew down to San Diego last weekend to participate in the 3rd annual West Coast Urban Sketcher's Gathering. Great weather, outstanding scenery to sketch, met a bunch of fellow sketchers from other cities and learned some dos and don'ts as Tacoma puts on this event next year.
The Bell Tower sketch was done on a Strathmore 6x12" watercolor sketch pad. The other sketches were created in a Moleskine watercolor sketch book.
The Old Town sketch was done under comfortable grey cloudy skies. The rest of the weekend was spent in the Southern California sun working on my farmer's tan. Many thanks to Jim Bumgarner and the San Diego Urban Sketch Group for putting on a great and enjoyable event.
