I chose to work today in the Public Garden. After taking one circuit around the park I settled on a scene with a flowering cherry in full bloom spreading over a path. I was working on an 8x10 scratchboard. I started at 9:15. I finished drawing the basic scene on the board with a white pastel pencil by 9:30. At 2:30 I declared the piece finished and went home.
It was a beautiful day and the park was full of people enjoying the sunshine. The tree I was drawing was particularly popular. At least three couples had their engagement pictures taken by it over the course of the day, along with a girl in a tutu dancing around its base for a photo shoot.
Shown below is a photo of the scene I chose, followed by the initial drawing, and then hourly updates at 10:15, 11:15, 12:15, 1:15, and then the final piece.
