The Fields

I don't seem to get tired of drawing at the Fields, so when Deb suggested an impromptu sketch gathering there, I was eager. There's something about the large expanse of air and sky and the constantly changing panorama of buildings and trees that keep this urban park interesting.

Today's weather didn't match the forecasts and it started with a drizzly, heavy mist. After a while though, the sun came out and the solid gray/white sky changed to clouds with patches of blue. Then the shadows made things look different than how we'd seen them in the beginning. We seemed to have an ever-changing sky show.

Today, I tried to use some of the techniques from Pat Southern-Pearce's activity at the Manchester Symposium. As always, I'm eager to get back to the Fields to try again.
