Gouache Sketch of the Lily Pond at Balboa Park by Sarah Sullivan

Lily Pond at Balboa Park

Our plein air class met at the Balboa’s Botanical Garden today. I sketched there but by the time I left I had a very over done sketch. Later when I came home I used my overdone sketch and a photo and did this one. I like this one because it is simple and the darks of the paper have a rhythm that sets off the lily pads.

This is a 9 X 9 gouache sketch on black paper.
