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."
