Pretzel Park Looking North

This is the view from Pretzel Park in Manayunk, looking north, up Roxborough Avenue.  The park gets its name from the pretzel-like shape of its walkways. I liked the idea of the shadowed foreground framing the well lit middle and background. This drawing was done with a fountain pen, brush pen and a color pencil. It took an hour and a half to draw.

Trivia note: There was a CBS show called HACK starring David Morse a few years ago. Pretzel Park is within a block of the "Hack's" home, taxi garage and his priest friend's church. The park can also be seen in M. Night Shyamalan's film UNBREAKABLE.

A shout-out to the guy who lives in that house, prominently framed between the trees. I hope you get to see this drawing (at long last).
