Batiquitos Birders

I am settling back into my painting rhythms from the days before COVID. I feel so lucky to be able to go out on Mondays and Fridays, see diverse San Diego County landscapes, and then try to capture something about it on paper.

This morning I went out to Batiquitos Lagoon in the northern part of the county. The weather was perfect, and I painted all day along the walking trail, not far from a vantage point for birdwatching. In this sketch, I caught two birders looking out across the lagoon. They were intent and focused, and I wanted to convey their emotional connection to the birds and lagoon.

  1. What a lovely painting. And the colour palette is very effective.
