Churches of Park Slope

I took a walk back on September 18th on my way to grab groceries, and sketched bits of the three churches on 7th Ave fairly close to my apartment. I really love how they turned out, especially when I used the waterbrush wash technique only for the windows in finishing them up!

Grace United Methodist Church

Old First Reformed Church

(My absolute favorite bit here is the birds who were hanging out in the window, where I did the wash around them to highlight them.)

Memorial Presbyterian Church

God, I'm so in love with my $13 Hero M86 fountain pen, and the fraction of my $1.50 sample of Noodler's Kiowa Pecan ink that I stuck in there. I have a favorite sketching implement, all right! It's such a weird, nifty little tool.
