Sip and Swim in Pt. Richmond

Pt. Richmond Plunge (AKA Municipal Natatorium)
It was so cold, cloudy and windy the morning my plein air group met to paint in Pt. Richmond I decided to start out by sketching from my car. The old Richmond Plunge, now completely and beautifully restored, is the first thing you see when you drive into Pt. Richmond.

Little Louies Cafe, Pt. Richmond

I headed to the main street of this little town, looking for a spot out of the wind to sketch. But I was seduced indoors by seeing my friend Sonia sketching at a table in Little Louie's, sipping a warm cup of tea. I started my sketch by drawing the tray of apples on our table and then just kept going, drawing each next thing I saw. I was a little worried about getting the wonderful patterned floor tiles right, but took it slowly and they came out ok.

  1. Nice sketches Jana! I especially like the colors and diagonal lines of the cafe drawing. Also the way you round the corners of your sketch and label it at the bottom makes me think of a tarot card. Hummm, that gives me an idea . . .
