Parque Colón


While in Santo Domingo, I did a few sketches on my iPad for my ebook project. Here is an early morning view of Parque Colón with the statue of Cristobal Colón (Christopher Columbus) in the center and Catedral Santa Maria de la Encarnacion, the first cathedral in the New World, in the background.

This square is such a vital center of life in Santo Domingo for both locals and visitors alike. During the 36th Worldwide SketchCrawl, I sat at El Conde, a sidewalk cafe on the periphery, enjoying a cold Presidente while I sketched.
