San Diego





Nearly at the end of these. The first was of a small bit of one of the buildings in Balboa Park, that day we had almost no time to stand and sketch we walked for about 6 hours but this was waiting at lunch time for my lunch to come.
then a sketch while having coffee on another long day of walking in the Old town, roof lines looking up the hill.
We had lunch in a Mexican restaurant that I had been to before with Patti, and this was a quick sketch of the leaves and plants in the courtyard and then a bit more detailed one of the fountain also in the courtyard. the wonderful use of tiles, the colors and not being frightened of them. sorry only black and white but I may have time through winter to do a few more as I remember them.
We have finally had some rain, not nearly as much as Adelaide and not nearly enough. John and I walked Encounter Bay yesterday, lovely to be walking again.
