It was our landscape class’ fourth and last morning at Torrey Pines State Reserve. I spent most of the three hours on another painting, which was OK, and then got experimental with this one. I began by sketching in the main sections in watercolor and then added pastels on the land and sky areas. I painted over some of the pastels with more watercolor and also scratched some of the pastel away. I like this sketch because it catches the movement of the sea and sky.
This is a watercolor and pastel sketch on watercolor paper.
