Central Park

Not sure of the name of this shell- perhaps a New Yorker can identify - I was in mid Central Park and really felt like an artist, sat on the bench and really studied and sketched, the light was from behind the shell so I had to work with that (9am). Groups came and went as I sketched, overall it was all mine. By now my legs were killing me and this was quiet and so lovely I had to sit and try to capture it. The perspective is off but I learn so much by attempting these difficult subjects. What a glorious day to wander the park which is simply Fabulous. Wonder if there are any apartments near by for rent !

Sandy,
What fun for me to see sketches of my home town! Great job! The structure in Central Park is just referred to as the "Bandshell" - there is usually a large group of rollerbladers circling around on the plaza in front of it. I'll check my park map and let you know if there is a more official name.

I checked my official Central Park Conservancy map and it is called the Naumberg Bandshell.

This is a great sketch! Brings back memories. I love CP, too. In that huge city, it's like an oasis. I'm sure if you could find an appartment, the rent would be an arm and a leg! lol! I really like your travel sketches. You're creating lots a wonderful memories.
