Sunny Day in the City

A bright and sunny day in San Francisco is a joy. But bright, sunny, and warm- almost 80 degrees – in winter is amazing. That’s the day I ended up in San Francisco to see the California Watercolor Association’s Annual Show. What really topped it off was finding (free!) street parking right by Lombard Street. Yes, that crazy, winding street everyone wants to drive down when they visit San Francisco.

I couldn’t resist drawing this neon sign for the Blue Mermaid Chowder House. Pretty sure it’s not vintage, though.

It was warm enough to eat al fresco, so I sketched the crowds at Fisherman’s Wharf through dinner.

And just as the sun set, I did one last sketch, of the large Ghiradelli Square sign that was just starting to light up…

    Suhita,
    Like how you used a outline and color for the buildings to support and focus on the Ghirardelli sign-that’s certainly vintage.
