I've always wanted to draw Belvedere Castle in Central Park, but the last time I tried to draw there, it was January and I got frozen out of the park. Now I decided to go in the summer, and I got horrendously sunburned! I can't win! Or I should just wear sunscreen. Anyhoo, it was a great drawing day, I'm glad I finally got up there to draw the castle. Plus, I got to try out my new reportage stuff for my trip to Disney this year (new dip pen and new oil pastels/turpentine brush pen!) and the new reference book I've been making.

While I was home, I also had the pleasure of meeting my brother and his fiance's brand new puppy, Macchio (It means "Spot" in Italian)! I am not a dog person. I even took a "course" from my mom's friend when I was little about how to not be completely terrified of dogs (I received a bone-shaped magnet for my achievement). But Macchio is the sweetest dog in the world. I absolutely love my new little nephew, and he even let me draw him while we were headed up hiking in the car! (You can see a tiiiiny drawing of him with my brother in the last post of the hiking drawings.)
