This is a preliminary pen and ink of a photo I took at the amusement park on Coney Island. I haven’t figured out exactly how to paint the dramatic sky from the photo without overpainting the intricate structure of the roller coaster.
Here is another photograph from the archives. When I lived in Bay Ridge, I used to walk to Coney Island. I enjoyed walking along the Belt Parkway on the sidewalk in the park between the highway and the bay. I loved Coney Island in the off season.
