Playground at the Park, by Joan Tavolott

Inspired by Lynn's two recent sketches of the playground equipment I had to give it a shot. I went down to a local park nearby where I knew I would have a view from the car. The last few days here have been far too cold to think about sketching outdoors. I'm jealous of those of you who are having warm enough weather to do that. We get a tease of a warm day now and then, but then the temps go back down. Anyway, first I sketched a few people near the swings.


Then I sketched the climbing equipment. I liked that a few people were out braving the cold so I could include some figures in each sketch. lol

  1. Hi Joan. What an awesome sketch. Really quite good. I love swings. In fact I've been after my husband to build me one or else I will order a swing to go in the back. I need to swing for some reason or other. Love your sketch Joan. Hope it warms up a little for you. Take care.

  8. Wonderful sketches, and such a colourful play-park. I love the geometric shapes you have clearly enjoyed drawing and painting, and you parked your car perfectly for two great compositions.

  11. Thanks Fran, Arnoldo, Margaret, Jez, Elisa, and Sirkka. Like me some people still venture out when activity is involved since it helps us stay warm. Sketching isn't active enough to do that. lol
