Contour line drawing

This is a quick sketch I created while my husband pumped gas for me. Contour line drawing was the technique taught to me by a courtroom artist. I enjoy contour line drawing because they are fast and perfect for urban sketching.

Spanish Village

Painting small in a large Daler Rawley sketchbook. I am still working with gouache. This piece was painted while with the San Diego Sketchcrawlers at Spanish Village in Balboa Park.

Lake Poway



This is my second attempt at gouache. I chose a subject that had some vibrant colors but I felt that my palette had many "sweet" colors and I tried to tame them down with blacks and mixing. Another attempt soon.

V's Coffee shop

I created this sketch in V's Coffee Shope in Rancho Bernardo. I was going to meet friends for plein air painting but it was too cold for me to go outside. This subject was perfect for my first gouache because it had a lot of darks and lights. The only thing I missed was trying vibrant colors.
