January 1st.. what a beautiful day, 50 degrees, a few clouds. Spent most of it roaming around Park Slope and Prospect Park to get to know the area a bit better, as well as find interesting architecture to draw. I was not disappointed. Found this Church on 6 Av and Carroll Street, which is a few blocks away from the Grand Army Plaza Arch (which i have to go back to draw soon).
After drawing this, which took a good hour or so (receiving compliments from little kids and their parents about how awesome your drawing is and having them watch you for a while is something that will never get old) i headed over to the park where i spent it playing soccer, and climbing a tree to watch the sunset. Something that is hard to do in the skyscraper canyons of Manhattan.
|i wish i was on the plane that left that contrail :(|
Overall, i'd say this was a pretty nice way to start the year 2012
