Oceanside Harbor Sketch

15-minute color sketch in gouache [gwahsh], which is opaque watercolor. On the days we want relax, but also "get out" my wife and I find ourselves often landing at the Oceanside Harbor about 15 miles away. It's always quite relaxing, with tourists walking about, fishing boats trolling in and out, sea gulls and pelicans diving in and out like planes in a war movie. We sit at Robbin's Nest, a little restaurant with outdoor seating at the corner of the harbor.

It's a beautiful sketch. So well balanced. Sounds like a perfect day to me.
I am never happier that I am when I am hanging out with the hubby in a nice place, and I am painting and he is reading. That, and car trips.
