8.5 x 11 Pen , Ink & watercolor

Well here's another sketch done with the SD Sketchcrawlers but this time the story is a bit different.
6 of us decided to go to the Self Realization Fellowship here in Carlsbad. They have a lovely garden that is used for meditations.
Well we sketched quietly amongst many families with children talking loud and taking pictures.
When finished we have a sharing time to show our work with our sack lunches. We asked if we could do that in the driveway as to not disturbed the visitors in the garden. NO, we were told.
OK.... outside on the street we went past the sidewalk (public )and ate. Well a few minutes later the guard came out and asked us to leave from there too.
The garden was lovely but.............. we are now signing our e-mail post to the group
The notorious SFC 6 !

8.5 x 11 Pen & Ink

This is a sketch done with the local SketchCrawlers of San Diego at the " La Jolla Cove ".
It's really a beautiful place. Gosh, I'm so thankful to live here !

Now you ask why am I calling it Godzilla !!!
Well there is this seagull I wanted to draw on top of the light but it did not workout that way. So as you can notice it turn into a Godzilla and before I make it worse I thought I would leave it alone as a funny anecdote.
So if you look closely there is a dinosaur on the street lamp. ha ! ha ! = )

ps. If you click on the picture it will make it bigger.

" The Fountain "

8.5 x 6.5 Pen & INk and Watercolor

This is the 2 sketch I did of the Alcazar Garden at Balboa Park but forgot to post it.
Grace ( my chocolate lab ) was with me on that day and at the end of the sketch time I had to let her drink in the fountain but after she did she got in and lay down in the water .
She just loves water !
Go back to the previous post to see the video of our time there !
