I did manage to take some great photos at Crystal Cove but I didn't bring my paints. I decided that I just wanted a break, and to spend some time with my family and friends without being preoccupied by painting. I took one of my photos and managed to do a sketch in my sketchbook off of the photo on my iPhone! Those were some tiny birds I must say! Here is my sketchbook entry for those wonderful few days of sand and surf!
