Stopping now before I
do something dumb overwork it. Normally, I would put it away for a few days then go back and tweak some more. But not this time; it’s being delivered over the weekend.
Overall, I’m OK with how it turned out; the client wanted a pretty exact rendering, so the only license I took was in omitting some neighboring structures/trees and placing the playground equipment. The drawing is fairly small, and I found it difficult at times to get as much detail into it as was needed. But on the plus side, the small size made it possible to complete the drawing fairly quickly.
Finished size: 6-1/8″ x 9-7/8″ on Strathmore 400 (80 lb.) drawing paper using a 005 Micron pen
