Fort Greene Park

I've been spending a lot of time drawing in Fort Greene Park lately; the fall weather has been lovely and there are so many good characters, colorful trees and funny dogs to draw. Here are some quick studies I did while there a few days ago.

Pear Studies

Last time I was home to see my parents, my father had me pick a bunch of pears from his tree in the garden to bring back to New York. There were SO MANY! I picked over 20 pears and the tree was still full of them. Two weeks later they're still not ripe, but they do make great subjects for painting :)
