San Diego Hillside

Sketch of a flower covered hillside in San Diego by Sarah Sullivan

San Diego Hillside

This is a surprisingly difficult scene to sketch. At first it looked like two canna lily blossoms against a green background. The more I sketched the more I noticed all the other flowers on the hillside and soon I had a jumble of overlapping colors with two odd lilies. I tried a second sketch with simpler shapes but returned to this one because it turns out I like the look of all the little paint strokes. I hope to do this same scene again tomorrow but perhaps without the lilies.

This is a gouache sketch on black paper.
