Park Benches: 40 Degrees In The Shade…

Lady and Dog, Retiro Park, Spain

There is a bench in Madrid’s Retiro park that sits just across a path from the one I drew above – a lady writing a letter, her dog waiting quietly in the 40 degree shade. I drew the other end of the same bench, from the same spot, some time ago…

Big Challenge! Madrid’s Palacio de Crystal

Palacio de Crystal Sketch, Retiro, Madrid

I thought I wouldn’t attempt drawing this for a long time, it’s so big and complex!
