Meet the correspondents: SAN DIEGO > Lydia Velarde



"In the past, San Diego was a destination I chose for a short getaway. I loved visiting Balboa Park Museums, Coronado Island and the beaches and took many weekend trips here.

I have been a resident of North County San Diego for about 20 years now and still take pleasure visiting tourist attractions in San Diego.

While organizing paint out groups for an art club I have discovered many lovely spots in and around this city. We have beaches, mountains, and deserts which are all close enough for a day trip of sketching and painting.

My favorite medium is pen and ink with watercolor."

The bowling drawings are so quick and simple but have totally captured the place and the moment. Great!

I hear it's lovely there Lydia! I'm looking forward to seeing your on-the-spot work. (Still enjoying the artwork I got from you!)

Looking forward to seeing your sketches of SD! Now that my brother has moved north I won't get down there as much- love this first sketch!
