Our group critique. I loved the piece he is holding. Nice strong bold colors with the red orange rooftops complimenting the bright green grass.
My piece, pen and ink with watercolor. The image is about 8 x 10 inches.

The best part was listening to these older ladies having a blast behind me. Four older women playing paddle ball, frisbee and tossing that velcro ball that sticks on a velcro paddle, laughing, and giggling as they tossed to each other.
Most of the artists painted the gazebo or trees but I painted a few houses on C Avenue and 6th Street. Here are some pics:

EDM Challenge #11 is draw your glasses or sunglasses. I tried to draw them with out wearing any glasses and it was like doing a BLIND contour drawing while seeing double.
It was drawn with a Koh-i-noor Rapido Sketch Pen which is my current favorite drawing tool. The color was done in watercolor.
Four Facts: They are worn on the nose, they are worn on my neck, they were not worn while drawing them, I need them.

Title: Hamel's Surf and Skate
This piece was drawn and painted on location in Mission Beach California. Mission Beach is one of the most interesting spots in San Diego. This shop sits right on the corner close to Belmont Park.
Sometimes when I draw people from life, I draw their heads really small. I guess I do it on spray bottles too!
I didn't want to draw a 409 bottle. I wanted to draw my water bottle that I use to spray my watercolor palette, but I couldn't find it.
