Yesterday I took my sketching students to Central Park. I chose the location because it was indoors with green living plants and trees, and a waterfall! After a major snow storm on Monday, and huge drifts of snow Tuesday morning, it was a great place to get out of the cold and see something green. We talked about sketching people then split up to sketch. I did this sketch of 2 of my students who were looking to the left toward a small bridge. I liked their vibrant clothes and the trees nestled around them. A woman in a hot pink coat came and sat near them with a small child. She barely stayed long enough for me to sketch her hat and face and coat collar. She bounced up and walked away, but sure enough, came back later for a couple minutes more….enough time to sketch the details. It was such a lovely place to sketch and we are going back next week!
