Early last Sunday morning, I was in the town of Windsor with my sketchbook friend Phil. We sat on a bench in the new “old town” section and enjoyed the crisp morning air while sketching. Several people stopped by to see what we were up to as they walked around the Town Green with their dogs, strollers, and kids.
Originally lacking a central gathering area for Windsor residents, a few years ago the city built this new downtown area with bookstores, candy stores, antique shops, and restaurants. Although this section of town was made to look older than it is, it’s great for sketching because of the variety of buildings and decades old oak trees that populate the area. Directly behind where I was drawing is a huge grass park where live concerts and outdoor movies are shown throughout the summer months.
