This is my final cherry tree sketch for 2017, done in an accordion book. I sketched this while there was lots of action in the park: people practicing Qigong. dog walkers, bicyclers, families with toddlers and strollers, lots of people taking pictures, a drunken man sleeping behind me, and even a drone over the Steel Bridge. It took me several days to finish painting it. It seemed like too much time was spent waiting for paint to dry!
This one I tweaked by adding some shadows. The people seemed to be floating more in the previous version.
