Park Sketching - Carolyn Pappas

Park Sketch
Last Sunday I went to the park in my city and sketched these trees while sitting in my car and sipping on (too sweet) coffee. It was a relaxing time and it was quite warm in my car so I didn't notice that it is November. There were a lot of old ladies walking dogs, but otherwise it was very quiet. I tried to keep my color selection down to a minimum so I didn't become overwhelmed with multiple colored pencils, but I actually like the limited palette now that I look at it. It seems very mellow to me, which was how I was feeling at the time.

The trees are all bare now. I was meaning to get out and draw the foliage, but unfortunately I had a bad fall a few weeks ago which kept me from drawing. I did collect some leaves however, and they are now on my side table waiting to be drawn.


  1. What a perfect, lovely wintry feel, Carolyn!
    Glad you're able to draw again, and so sorry about your fall!

  2. This has such a wonderful feel!! Hope you're on the mend.

  3. These trees have such personality and grace! I almost expect them to break out in a lovely dance.
