Into the Woods and Down the Dell


...to find a castle, a pair of lovers true, and paths to the west.

We began at Belvedere Castle.


Then to the Delacorte Theatre vicinity, where we were treated to jazz.
 The trio found a healthy audience to appreciate their performance.

Whilst Romeo and Juliet continued their romance, oblivious to all other life around them.

Under the willow tree were some rocks to perch on.

Sketchers found the grass just as comfortable. (Julie at left. Richard, at right, didn't actually look this stiff. I just drew him that way. Sorry!)

One has to make trees whilst in Central Park. And lampposts.

Some toddlers harassed a sweet dog.

And Mr. Belvedere surveyed us all from his stony perch.

For lunch, we went to Carmine's.

And after lunch, we sketched The Saint Urban on Central Park West.

And some photos I took along the way.

  1. What a great day you had. There's nothing quite like the company of like-minded friends. Nice sketches, too.

  2. Mia, we didn't do a great job of sharing this week. I didn't see most of these. They are great! I really like the way the ones with the mix of color and just ink lines. They have a way of making your eye focus on the subject in black and white rather than the color which is the background...an interesting way of working. Great to sketch with you again!

  5. Mia, love your bleeding and mingling colors against the simplicity of the inkwork.

    1. Thank you. Sometimes the watercolors overwhelm the inkwork, but separating them puts the lines forward, as Joan pointed out above. It shifts what you focus on to paint and draw.
