Sketching Astoria Park

What a great park and what a beautiful day.  Set between two bridges with a wonderful view of the water. 

Turn in one direction and you're looking up at the Triboro Bridge with a dramatic perspective




Turn in the other direction and you're looking at the Hellsgate Bridge


The second drawing uses a bleeding walnut colored ink tinted with watercolor.

  1. Great sketches, Mark! I love the one with the couple with the stroller and the man searching in the trunk...so typical! I like the way the bleeding ink sketch came out too.

  2. Nice sketches Mark. I think you're holding back on showing all of them! I like the inclusion of the people also, it adds to the energy of the city.
