Every Day in May: May 13th

85219984@N00.jpg  We spent several hours in Central Park with my son, daughter-in-law and grandson Robbie in celebration of Mother's Day.  The weather was beautiful and the Great Lawn was full of families and softball players.  I sketched the city skyline looking south from the Great Lawn at 86th St.

 I still hate the rough watercolor paper. This sketch was done in my NYC Journal using Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils.  The piece of subway map that is above my sketch is my addition to the journal to cover the gap between signatures.



A great cityscape with the green foliage in the foreground...
I have to say, I'm also not at all fond of rough WC paper. I adore the HP and then the coldpress is nice when I want to paint drybrush or look for texture.

I like your skyline sketch. I wish I had managed a sketch on my two visits to NYC! I would love to go back there ... My perfect day would include a walk around the Central Park reservoir, several hours' browsing in Pearl Paint followed by soft shell crab and a cold Chinese beer at NY Noodletown. :-)

Oh Shirely I wish I was there, my CP visit was so lovely last month and with the days we are having I know the park would be even more glorious - Lovely sketch.
