Everyday Matters #174 Draw a bridge

a funny thing happened after I read that the challenge was a bridge. ..

I actually thought I would have to dig out some old pictures of the Coronado Bay Bridge in San Diego, but I didn't want to go through the hassle.

What bridge can I draw? Where will I find one?

Suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, my friend Eileen emailed some pictures from her recent trip to Berkeley, California.

There it was right in front of my face, bright as day.. the Golden Gate Bridge, in San Francisco.

Here is my sketch and my "entry" for EDM Draw a bridge from drawn from my friend's photo.

Thanks Eileen!

Quail Botanical Gardens

I worked in Encinitas today ... a beautiful day I might add...
which just happened to be the FREE day for Quail Botanical Gardens ... so I stopped in for an hour, sat under a tree and drew the following:

Its pen and ink with watercolor in a watercolor moleskine.
