Asilomar 2008

(sketched 2008-11-07 to 09) The sketch is of Asilomar State Beach which is adjacent to the Asilomar Conference Grounds near Pacific Grove and Monterey, California. I did both the sketch and watercolor 'onsite' as I sat in the sand at the beach. The day was cold and very overcast.

I spent the weekend at Asilomar to take Gay Kraeger and Christina Lopp Schwabecher's Illustrated Watercolor Journaling class (http://www.watercolorjournaling.com/). I thoroughly recommend their classes. The weekend was a real joy as I was fully immersed in beauty and wonder -- the beautiful site, watercolor and sketching 'toys', and I was alongside many enthusiastic and creative people. It sure sparked the creative juices!!! What a wonderful weekend!

This one turned out beautifully! I still haven't painted my last sketch from the beach - must get to that soon.
