The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the iconic architectural features of New York City and a place I’ve always loved to walk on. You can walk across with the hustle and bustle of the city, or you can take your time at a leisurely pace.
This portrait drawing was given to celebrate the Dad’s college graduation! The photo that the drawing is based on was taken at his thesis presentation, where he proudly holds his newborn son. This drawing is an 8″ x 10″ on paper, drawn with artist graphite pencils.
Now that the weather is warming up, my wife, son and I have been going out to ‘Central Park’ in the neighborhood we live in (One Loudoun). It’s probably the best residential park I’ve seen in Loudoun County. The landscaping is beautiful and the park is very well laid-out. There’s areas for kids to play that are built seamlessly into the landscape, there’s a dog park, there are benches, there’s a lake, and it’s within close walking distance to the downtown plaza area. So, being an Artist, I always find inspiration for paintings when I’m there. So after two years of living here, I finally started my first piece of Central Park. I just finished sketching it out and adding some color, with more color to be painted in. I envision pops of brick red, deep purple hues, dark browns, and a tad bit of orange on the ground, with luminous sunlight shining down.
