I kept my promise of visiting Central Park this summer. Yesterday I had planned to visit the Metropolitan Museum and sketch in the galleries. When I walked up the steps and to the main door a guard was telling people that the museum was closed for the day. I was very disappointed since I was ready to draw, and on top of that it was an uncomfortable walk there since the day was very humid. I didn't feel like going back home since I was uptown. I decided to take a stroll through central park instead. I'm very happy I did. It was the most relaxing day I've had since moving into the city. The vast amounts of grass and trees and birds was too much to handle. Central Park is very big, with little winding roads and paths that lead to different little areas, and at times one may feel lost it doesn't matter since it's such a great park.
I sat at the ledge of this fountain and drew for about an hour. I completed two little sketches of two of the little cherubs located at the center of the fountain. It was a great time drawing in the open air with the sound of the water running in the background. It was an ideal New York moment.
