Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

We had some errands to do in the neighborhood, so parked the car on the hydrant, so I stayed in and had fun. We checked on Iphone what Yelp has to say about this cozy "Yellow Hook Grille", some cool stuffed mushrooms,  and planned it for our next visit. After our home creation masterpiece: double baked creamy with fake bacon and scallion potato skins nothing seems good enough. (Drawing will follow).
 I got wild with Kuretake brushes over ink on Hahnemuhle Torchon paper. It says online that in the mid-seventeenth century Dutch settlers called this part of Brooklyn Yellow Hook because of the color of the soil.

Thank you very much CrimsonLeaves! I love drawing from the car, so comfortable and no one seeing you, and listening to music. Just not easy to find legal parking.:-)
