The extreme northern point on Manhattan is Ft. Tryon Park and it includes The Cloisters Museum, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We arrived too late to go into the museum, but I took several photos outside. Once again, I looked for architectural armatures for the dazzling array of greens. To the left I saw an orderly series of buttresses receding into the greenery.
I loved the view of trees through elegant pointed Gothic arches that can be seen throughout the museum. After I finished the sketches I thought the greens were not diverse enough, nor did they capture enough of the spirit of springtime. I found a tube of paint in my collection: phthalo yellow green made by Daniel Smith Artist Materials. I dabbed a glaze of it over the long-leaved plants in the foreground of the buttresses sketch, and also glazed over sections of the trees seen through the arches. I think this amazing color really brought the sketches to life, though I would use it judiciously, and it might not find many homes outside of a springtime landscape.
