Another sketch from New York’s Central Park. This one is of the Belvedere looking across the Turtle Pond. This is an incredibly beautiful vista. I had to darken my original sketch.  It is amazing how light all of my sketches turned out. Bright sunlight definitely plays tricks with a person’s vision.

The Belvedere in Central Park

This is graphite in my 6″ X 9″ Bee sketch book.

This is the second sketch from my trip to New York City. I sketched this tower at the Belvedere  on Sunday morning. It was sunny and bright and the glare from the paper about blinded me. DUH! I was finally smart enough to move into the shade. I thought I had taken a photo of this but couldn’t find it so there is no comparision this time.

I sketched in pencil in the park but always had the intention to finish it in marker. I also added just a touch of watercolor to add soft background shapes and some texture to the stone walls.
