High Tide at Torrey Pines

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of A High Tide at Torrey Pines

High Tide at Torrey Pines

There was such a high tide at Torrey Pines this morning, the lagoon was full of water and very exciting to sketch. In my enthusiasm, I painted over the shoreline and road but like the sketch anyway.

Yesterday I prepared a board to paint on that was a mixture of black and gold watercolor grounds and blue tinted gesso. When I got to my painting spot, I was committed to a composition that did not quite suit the moment. Because of the high tide, the foreground and shoreline had different shapes than I anticipated.  I think tomorrow I will just paint on a solid base of black so that I am free to respond to what I see.
