Central Park Posted by James Baker on December 4, 2010 Drawings, Friends, Location Sketching, Travel Tagged with: Dave Gordon, New York, Rhode Montijo Dec 042010 Not such a good sketch but I like it anyway, as a reminder of a pleasant day spent with friends (Dave & Rhode) drawing in New York’s Central Park. 8 Responses to “Central Park” Scott Tolmie says: December 5, 2010 at 12:15 PM it's awesome Jamie, drawing outside on a beautiful day like artists have done for centuries- pencil and paint on paper- know it's corny to say- but it's a sacred tradition, plus fun to think of you and your pals drawing out there together. i've been going to my friend Charlie's drawing class at Laney College, and notice the whole energy of drawing with other people is different, better, would you agree?

Reply James Baker says: December 7, 2010 at 5:11 PM AMBER: that is all I could fit of RHODE onto the page (should have planned my composition a little better!) SCOTT: I agree. Drawing with friends is one of my fave things to do, whether inside or outside. But I should do it more often. Reply A MacLean says: December 7, 2010 at 5:18 PM That's what I like about it. Unlike a canvas, it's relaxed. I like how we see half a fountain, and half a man. James Baker says: December 7, 2010 at 5:19 PM and a page of muddy colours. Awesome. Scott Tolmie says: December 7, 2010 at 5:23 PM Amber, i think insulting Dave is un-called for. (I don't know Rhode well enough to slag him, sorry Dave!) A MacLean says: December 7, 2010 at 5:49 PM D'oh! I insulted Rhode. Isn't that an old country song? Jean Duval says: December 15, 2010 at 11:06 AM Hello James ! Gee!
