The San Diego Urban Sketchers met at Cerdos Farmers Market, Solana Beach today, in an attempt to stay cool as we sketched. This woman and her dog caught my eye as they sat waiting for their companion to finish his lunch. I first noticed how her flushed face and legs complemented the bougainvillea and umbrella. Then as I sketched her, I also noticed that I liked the way she sat up and chatted cheerfully, clearly enjoying her Sunday afternoon.
This is a charcoal and watercolor sketch on multimedia paper.
