Sketching at City Park, NOLA

Over Christmas break, we had the opportunity to visit New Orleans, Louisiana where our daughter lives and she took us to visit a new park that we hadn’t seen before, City Park.  The name was not impressive but the park sure was!  I could have wandered under the giant live oaks dripping with Spanish moss for hours…

We saw the 800 year old McDonogh live oak and I had to sketch this stately tree.  Fortunately there was a bench on the other side and I was able to get a quick sketch in before it started raining.  I worked more on it later at the hotel.

The park also had a beautiful sculpture garden and several other sections to visit but it was fairly cool, a bit drippy and we had our dog with us so we couldn’t explore as much as we wished.  If you have a chance, check out this beautiful park!  Enjoy…
