Above you see the top of a lamp post fixture, and the two little ones fooling around on parallel bars (this one at a distance). There's also a view of the little creek that runs through the park. This time I got a better feel for drawing running water. It did look that dark, but not because it was dirty. I tried to convey the reflection on the standing waves as much as possible. The creek is channeled, but this part was mostly based on glances while my attention was pulled by the little ones. They do get around, exploring, sharing with other kids, even trying to climb trees. I wish I had a better session with that creek. There's lots of detail I didn't get, like a line of tree stumps running down the fence on the left. I'm sure I'll get more chances.
I hope you like these little vignettes because I'm sure there will be more. But don't worry, I'll vary the subjects. There is plenty to sketch, and I can't wait to start on caricaturing or portraying some of the walkers, runners, and other characters that frequent this little oasis. Thanks for dropping by, and have a great art time!
