Park Sketches

Saturday was gorgeous summer weather. We got out to the park in the morning because it was going to get hot. The park in question is a favorite of many. It’s on the edge of town where the river widens out before the damn. There are trails, bridges, nature paths, a couple of playgrounds, a dock where they rent paddle boats and canoes, and more.

I made a few sketches. I learned that fishing is a sketchers dream–young people will stand relatively still for moments at a time and old people will sit still half the day. These sketches were done in watercolor pencil.
