The landscape class met today for the first of three sessions at Shelter Island in San Diego. It was beautiful but I had trouble capturing the look of boats in water. I wanted to be able to define the individual boats but there were so many that they visually merged together and this confused me. This is the second sketch I did this morning and, while better than the first, shows I have a lot to learn about rendering the look of a marina.
This is a watercolor and pastel sketch on watercolor paper.
