vacation sketches

View of the living room (also floor lamp & table lamp for scavenger hunt) acrylics in a 6x8 inch watercolor pad. Started as a pen & wash. Then I added watersoluble graphite to darken some areas. It just got all muddied up so I covered it all with acrylic paint.

Mandalay Beach looking toward Ventura. Watersoluble graphite on ATC size watercolor paper. Sketched during my walk on the beach. Resisting the urge to add color, but even though the sun came out, the dominating color was gray. Can't see all the way to Ventura today, can't see the Channel Islands.
