Bike and Sketch: Bay Trail / Baylands

Along the Bay Trail, Baylands, Palo Alto, California

Just a few minutes from my office is a haven for birds -- Baylands in Palo Alto, connected via the Bay Trail to Shoreline at Mountain View. We biked along the trail, and I stopped to sketch. We saw stilts, ducks, egrets, and even two pelicans.

I was testing out Bee Paper's Pen Sketcher's pad, as I'll be using that in an upcoming workshop I'm running for Art in Action. I was pleased to see that it worked fairly well with a Sharpie pen, watercolors, and a waterbrush.
