A Day Out: Salton Sea + Bombay Beach, CA

A Day Out: Salton Sea + Bombay Beach Photography | Ekaterina Orlovie

A few weeks ago, we went out for a weekend camping trip to the Salton Sea. Jeremy and I wanted to visit this place for a long time since we both like photographing urban decay. It was like I thought it would be (dead fish, middle-of-no-where vibes) and also a complete surprise (serene,  beautiful, a place to escape to). After visiting, I can understand why people want to save this place and revive the area.

Drawing In the Garden

I love drawing outside! Yesterday, we took advantage of the sunshine in Riverside and wend down to UCR Botanic Gardens. The gardens are not super busy, there’s plenty of space, and it has this sort of relaxing hideaway type atmosphere so it’s easily of my favorite places to visit. Some flowers are just starting to bloom and it was so lush and green – my brain just goes on vacation when I’m there.

I drew some not quite in bloom lilac flowers and a very colorful rose. To draw outdoors, all I brought with me were sketching supplies: 2 pencils, 2 erasers, a sharpener, and a sketchbook. You don’t really need much else. If you want the sketch to look more finished, simply take a reference photo and fill in the colors later at home. What’s your favorite (outdoor!) place to draw? Let me know in the comments!

Piggies! 🐷

Ok, so apparently it’s National Pancake Day this week and National Pig Day today. I don’t know who comes up with these holidays, but I’m not complaining! While I totally missed the pancake train, I am jumping on the piggie bandwagon today and sharing my pig-themed  favorites. (I sincerely hope there’s a day for foxes because the only animal I like better than pigs are foxes.)
