Leo Carrillo Ranch

I did this sketch in July at the Leo Carrillo Ranch, a public park in Carlsbad, California that was the former home and working rancho of the Hollywood actor it's named for.  It's a beautiful place with peacocks freely roaming the grounds.  That's a real peacock feather in the bottom right.  This sketch outing was a San Diego Urban Sketchers meet-up.

Queen Califia's Magical Circle

I went to visit this Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture park in Escondido, California but it was closed for construction.  So I sat outside the fence and drew from a shady vantage point.
