sunday sketch group meeting: half moon bay ♥

Half Moon Bay today was in its perfect mix of foggy/sunny splendor. Through 2014, I found myself making a point to draw more. [You can see a set of snapshots here LINK] Anywhere. I have many of my sketches always handy with me in my daily moleskine, but have found great joy in carrying a larger sketch book to meet-ups and sketch groups.

Lydia, one of my super cool creative director from work, invited me to join a gathering in Half Moon Bay. It was a gorgeous morning/day to be there!
+ for those of you outside the Bay Area, HMB is approx 30 miles south of the city, and known for the Mavericks surfing contest and the annual pumpkin festival in October 🙂

Here are some pictures:

Almost there, these two are quick snap shots from the passenger’s window in Pacifica.
If you haven’t been to the best taco bell in the world aka on the beach in Pacifica, it’s a must.

It was a group of about 12 people and it was sunny at 10am, got a bit foggy then was sunny again after 1pm.
I scoped out the area for a good place to sit and draw, I think I was the only one who didn’t bring a portable chair/stool but that was fine, threw my jacket down and found a nice grassy spot near the boats.

These are my two drawings, the ones with the little boats and the paddlers took approx. 2hrs, the one with the boat poles, took about 20 minutes. The pictures of where I was looking at from, are right above them both.

Hope you had a nice weekend.
