Feeding the Pigeons at St. Stephen’s Green

I finally finished another travel journal page. They might be coming a little slower these days. I’m super busy with a lot of other things, but I’m determined:) This was just a sweet scene that I captured when I found the park. It was such a beautiful place, a veritable oasis in the middle of a bustling city. There weren’t that many people, and the ones that were there were really just enjoying the day. I wish I could go back and sit by the water.

Carriage Horse at St. Stephen’s Green

(please click to make it big!)
I now have total respect for the dude (or dudette) that invented the wheel! Or anyone that can paint them well…OMG! I spent an hour on that smaller wheel, and it’s still not right! It was right, in pencil, once, then I inked it and screwed it all up! (Which I tend to do a lot)  Lol! Anyways…watercolor doesn’t really do what I want on this paper…I guess because it’s not white it makes everything a tad muddy…but oh well, I’m still pretty happy with this one.  It still took all day. I might have to take a few days off of the sketchbook and do some “serious” art, so my hubby starts taking my “stay at home artist” act seriously, though:P.  
A little factoid for you all…Carriage, as it is written on my pic, was actually written on the pavement…parking spots for horses!
