last sketches in california ever (for now)

July 26, 2010

10am at the Point Reyes Lighthouse, looking down 340 steps that I didn’t choose to descend:) This windswept foggy day was our last chance to sketch in California. This weekend we pack up the car and drive to our new home in Montreal!

Here’s the end of the Chimney Rock trail, looking north along the dramatic cliff wall. I love this place for the ever-present wind, and the feeling of being right out on the edge of the world.  This seemed like the best spot for the last-ever-for-now drawing in Cali, and the start of our 10 day cross country drive.

    Well, it’s a very different landscape out here but you’re going to find lots to draw and paint in this beautiful city and province. Have a safe trip; hope I’ll have a chance to welcome you here in Montreal sometime, my own adopted home!

    These watercolours are wonderful, the landscape is really fascinating, so distant from the cliché of California that is usually shown here where I am.
    It will be exciting to discover Montreal through your sensitive, pleasant works!

    These are beautiful.

    Good luck in your new home. I also look forward to seeing your Montreal pics.
