Succulents at Balboa Park

Sketch of a few succulents from Balboa Park
Succulents at Balboa Park

The succulent garden at Balboa Park is a great place to paint this time of year. Succulents need a lot of sunshine so it can be uncomfortable to paint there during our warmer months. Now the weather is cool enough to make it much more inviting. The sky and mesa beyond this row of plants were spectacular in the morning light and I used very watery gouache to try to capture the feeling of the light and wind.
