SketchCrawl in the Presidio

I decided to get out the watercolors for Saturday's SketchCrawl. It was a nice change of pace. I was mostly trying to get the colors correct, and get back some of my traditional color mixing skills. Digital painting has ruined me! I really enjoyed it though and think I'm going to start doing it more; maybe with some ink line work.

This was the first time I'd been to the Presidio. It was really nice. Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. The Palace of Fine Arts Theater was very cool and a little overwhelming. It managed to make it into each piece. Apparently a lot of people get their wedding pictures taken there. I saw at least three couples getting their pictures taken. I also managed to get a wicked sunburn. I forgot how much a sunburn hurts. Lousy sun.
