There was so much going on near the Fields today, it was like Busytown. For this sketch,  I sat in the courtyard of an apartment building and drew the praying mantis like arms of the cement pump trucks, a crane, a photo shoot, and the shadows and peeling bark of the River Birch trees (thank you, Deb). With all of this, I still didn't get in one of the dozens of cement trucks that were there for a big pour. With the background sound of huge machines, there were still lots of people out enjoying the sun, including a small group of happy sketchers.

  1. I like the angle of those long arms in your sketch--it really emphasizes their spidery character. And the organic River Birches are great by all of the hard surfaces--cool sketch!

  2. You and Janene really captured those huge pumping arms. I do like how you have used the contrasting green and red throughout. And your river birches are awesome.
