It was a beautiful day and I sketched at Torrey Pines State Reserve. My plan was to apply yesterday’s lesson to conveying this amazing landscape. I wanted to show the ruggedness of the terrain, all of its angles, bends, folds, flatness and roundness, by using line and the direction of the paint stroke. I ran out of time and so did not add pastel lines over the paint, as I did yesterday, but I see it was not necessary. I am beginning to understand this process and will keep at working on this skill this week.
This is a gouache sketch in a 17 X 12 inch Derwent sketchbook with black paper.
