About a month ago I was waiting in the car in the parking lot at Lorimer Park while my husband finished up his run. My plan to practice sketching and a few free moments collided and sparked the idea of drawing to fill this little bit of time. So I pulled out my 6″ x 6″ sketchbook and got to work.
The scene is the corner of the parking lot – there is a fence and then the woods layer themselves behind it. At the park, I drew in pen, and I added the colors (Tombow and Prismacolor brush tip pen markers) at home.
Things still look pretty similar at the park – the trees are a jumble of yellows and greens and the undergrowth has disappeared, revealing the vertical lines of tree trunks crossed by skinny branches. I love the disorderly look the landscape has at this time of year and I hoped to capture that in this drawing.
I haven’t been using color in these sketches in my sketchbook, but I like the way this one looks. Hmmm… I feel some new ideas coming on, pen and ink and markers…
