AT the Gaslamp

This is my first sketch in a very large sketchbook my friend Doris Bertch gave me. The watercolor paper pages are 11 x 14.5 inches. It was a bit scary at first, and I had to practice holding it on my lap before going out with it. I think I am going to enjoy this book.

Old Cactus Garden, Balboa Park

This cactus garden was developed in 1935 for the California Pacific International Exposition. It contains some of the largest cactus and succulent specimens in Balboa Park. This is were the San Diego Weekday Sketchers met. Below are my sketches and a 3:46 minute video of the area, sketches, and my artist friends.
