Bryant Park in Manhattan.

One more experiment with Noodler's ink and couple of Kuretake pens on Arches hot press paper.
I pass this park on the way to my dentist. Often I sit for a bit and sketch people or trees, or chairs with uncomfortable backs. It is wonderful to be alone with your thoughts for a few minutes, allow yourself to feel with your skin soft breeze, hear sound of falling leaf, watch unhealthy looking city birds, picking crumbs, sketch strangers, sharpen pencil, look at the sky above tall buildings. Appreciate it and seal the memory in the sketch.

Nikira, this is absolutely beautiful, truly. I think a new favorite. City parks are beautiful, indeed.

I love this one...brings back memories of my trip to NY recently. I couldn't get over what I called "pop up parks". Beautiful sketch and musing - thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much CrimsonLeaves, yes, this park loved by many people, it is so pretty, cozy and happy right in the middle of the City. I love that lamp pols. :-)

Thank you very much Trudy, I love this park too, it is so classy. I had fun with a little texture in this polls. What is "pop up parks"? That they pop suddenly in the middle of the city life?
