A small pastel study for larger pieces in multiple mediums. Years ago I made my first trip out to San Diego for a vacation and to visit my uncles Charlie and Carl. We never adjusted to the time change so we were up and out two hours before most touristy stuff opened. I loved the cool air and scenery. I was painting a lot from photos back then. Most of my time was spent taking photos. I did enjoy good food prepared by my uncle Carl and just hanging out with with them both. I started out with a watercolor underpainting in complementary colors on Wallis paper.
