I drove north of San Diego today to visit an old friend who is spending the week at a resort in Carlsbad. At the end of the day we sat on the lawn above a young woman who was soaking up the sunshine. I was distracted by the way the woman seemed to relish the sun but it was not a good time to pull out my sketchbook. Later when I was back home I tried to recreate the scene using some of my saved sketches for reference, but also thinking about how to convey the feeling of the sun in our faces and the beauty of the glow of the light on the sea and sky.
This is a pen, watercolor, Procreate and Snapseed sketch.
