9 x 6   Pen and Ink with some Watercolor on a Stillman & Birn - Alpha Series

Here is a drawing done with the San Diego Urban Sketchers from the Island of Coronado.
Drawing can be so fun especially when the view is fabulous like this one but even if you want to just draw a simpler view, drawing can be a release of your creativity onto paper and the more you practice the better you get.
I would encourage everyone to keep a small travel sketch pad to jot down something you think is nice, after some time you will find so many of your drawing to help you relive a moment or just enjoy again the setting.

                             6 x 18  Pen and ink with some Tombow markers

The San Diego Skyline is very attractive. I enjoyed drawing my city from the view of Coronado Island sitting on the pier of the ferry. I decided to not put any color on my original and I will add some on the prints I will make. I will post the color version later.
This drawing was made originally for the header of the blog of the 3rd Annual Urban Sketchers Sketch Crawl which will meet here in August 7.8.9. 2015.
Come join us if you can it will be worth it to visit our beautiful city.

Mix media 8 x 10 Pen And Ink with some Watercolor

This drawing was done on location in Balboa Park San Diego. It is such a lovely park to visit. There is so much to see there. Seeing a performance here is so wonderful. In the summer they rent these big umbrellas for $ 2 so the sun won't beat on your head while you enjoy the show, this is why they are all the same !
This piece with others is featured at the San Diego International Airport, Terminal 2 next to the international arrival gate, ground floor before the TSA security so anyone can visit.
