Winter Beach Weekend

A winter weekend at the beach. Pismo , California.

There’s the food:
People line up for the fish tacos and clam chowder at Splash Cafe. They’re worth the wait.

My kids and I polished off a rack of ribs at Mo’s Barbeque. I loved the sign, though it’s not really as ‘vintage’ as it looks…

Then, there’s the beach. Warm and sunny one day, cold and foggy the next. But always full of people to draw: kids building sandcastles, joggers, dog walkers and surfers. I love drawing them, they make a sketch come alive.pismo_pier2

And when it gets really foggy and the crowds move indoors, it’s just the birds and me.

  1. These sketches are a little nostalgic to me. We used to live in San Luis Obispo 30 years ago and have returned regularly to visit friends. I love the multiples of the birds and the people. Looks like good fun!

  2. Love these: very rich in color and so alive with the dynamic line work.
