Scavenger Hunt Item 19: Rose

OK, I bike through Ladd's Addition so often that I couldn't help amplifying the prompt of "a rose" into "a rose garden." The contrast between the rather battered traffic signs and the fresh vibrant flowers always makes me happy.


  1. Yes, this looks like 'Ladd's Addition.' Besides the signs, I like how you've put lots of detail and color on the roses in front and added all those dots of roses in the background. There's a lot to keep this sketch interesting. Nice!

    1. Thanks, Vicky! I was experimenting a sort of impressionist approach to atmospheric perspective, I guess...I'm glad that the family upon whose front lawn I had plonked to do this sketch didn't get impatient with me sketching!
