The Four Freedoms

Sketching at the 4 Freedoms Park in Roosevelt Island. In addition to our regulars, we were joined by Kalina Wilson, visiting from Portland.

  1. Richard, the panaramic sketch looks wonderful, but could you explain the shuffling dance on your paper? I would love to hear your opinion of the design of this park... next time I come in.

  2. That's an unusual way to prep paper. lol Most people I know paint or add texture. You did a different technique than I've ever seen.

  3. Fine sandpaper works well also.
