Between Two Trees

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of a landscape between two trees

Between Two Trees

Today I continued to try out new surfaces to paint on. This surface is black watercolor grounds applied with a roller. It made for a rough but uniform texture and absorbed the color down into its surface.

I painted at Torrey Pines Preserve in almost the same spot as yesterday, but I looked northeast, not northwest across the lagoon. After I planned and started, the sketch seemed to take its own direction. The white cliffs on the facing hill were underemphasized and the sea, which was to the left, got left out. I was distracted by the way the paint went onto the surface and just went with it, mostly seeing what it could do.
