Santa Monica, California

Back in 2014 we spent about four weeks traveling in the US.

First we spent two weeks driving through California, Nevada and Arizona.

Then we took a flight to New York, and spent about two weeks there.

One of the first places we visited was Los Angeles.

I guess we couldn’t avoid the turist trap of heading down to Santa Monica beach.

The beach was very nice, though, and not to crowded at all.

And I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the lifeguard tower.

I have watched Baywatch, after all…

Los Angeles, California

To get a little break from all the digital drawings I’ve been making lately, I decided to do a quick sketch og the lifeguard tower.

Not a beauty, bit it ended up like this:

It was nice to reminisce for a bit while I was drawing it.

    1. Thank you! It was a very good trip indeed. And soon we learned that when people ask “how are you?”, they don’t actually want your complete life story 😉

    1. Thank you, Elaine 🙂 I’ve been spending about all my time doing digital drawings lately, so it was nice to get back to the pen and brushes for a while 🙂

      1. I find that I need to take a break from different mediums from time to time, so switching it up gives me the motivation to keep a steady pace 🙂

  1. Nice sketch! I was wondering if you could share a good source of watercolor tutorials. I’ve been experimenting on my own but I think I need a step by step approach by a pro.

    1. Thank you, Melissa 🙂 I’ve been using Tim Wilmot’s youtube-tutorials for my watercolour training. He has a loose style, which I do like. There’s tons of videos on his channel, so that would be my best tip 🙂
