Almond croissant, fruit, and coffee at the Whole Foods in Hillcrest, San Diego. Painted on location.
Painted over morning coffee on the patio at Starbucks in the San Diego neighborhood of Kensington. It’s a really nice area.
There were great views in all directions, including a stunning Sixties Functional gas station and a Modernist library with trees growing through the architecture. I didn’t paint the library though; I got too discombobulated from Spring Forward. I’ll have to go back.
While I am primarily an oil painter, I love the immediacy of completing a loose pen and ink sketch highlighted with watercolor.
At this point, I think I’m going to have to call this a series: Sunday at Starbucks.
A small plein air watercolor of the Harbor Island Marina. What a pretty, restful place to paint among the boats, the calm water, and the suntanned joggers.
It’s a great place to unwind.
