    Drawn in by Pictures

    I always thought the Armory Square park with the shot clock would make a nice picture. I've always liked parks in cities because it seems weird to have this area with trees and grass in the middle of an area where you can't find a patch anywhere. As people, we need to have some nature around us. I didn't want the picture to be super-realistic, so I started with the line drawing first, then put down a yellow wash. I tried to make all the colors by mixing something else with the yellow on the page, giving it a unified feel. This gave everything a nice yellowish glow. I like the yellow because it almost has the nostalgic feeling of a long gone summer day. There were some beautiful buildings in the background, but I prefer the organic shapes of the trees in the foreground. It makes the space feel fun and friendly.
