This morning my Wednesday group painted near the visitor center at Torrey Pines State Reserve. We stood up on a hill and looked north across the lagoon and hills. I wanted to show how the lagoon empties into the sea but got distracted and included everything I could see. I plan to go back soon and simplify the composition.
This is a gouache and pastel sketch on 17 X 12-inch black paper.
Looks a lovely spot.
