Parks – Drawings

Here are some more small sketches from photos. I sit on my sofa at night while watching TV and draw, these days. You saw an earlier set of sketches done this same way recently, the connection being that they all depicted parking lots.

The theme this time is scenes from various parks I go to near my home – Lorimer Park, Norristown Farm Park, and the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust. Here are the photos:

Here is the drawing – pen and ink in an 8″ x 8″ note book.

    Oh, thank you, I take it as a great compliment. I am very flattered. I know what you mean, being compared, is it good or not? I think it is human nature to reference what we know in order to explain the new. That’s how I see it. We build and draw on every influence, including other humans. I personally this this is a nice feeling, to be part of the human web, past and present. Especially now.

    Thank you. I am lucky to live near a lot of really great places to be outdoors, even in the nearness to the city and being in the suburban built up environment.

    Thank you. We are lucky to have so many great places to wander in, and all kinds of trails, really close to home, and you would not think it in such a built up area.
