I was inspired to do this CAD rendering during one of my afternoon walks in Central Park this week. Even though the week ended rainy and dark, there were enough sunny days early on to enjoy being outside in NY and in the park. One ginko tree at the periphery of the Sheep Meadow section of the park had just dropped its leaves; the ground underneath the tree was a carpet of fan-shaped leaves reflecting golden in the sun. I stood under that tree for a long time taking in the sun, the color, and savoring a moment of fall that in the Midwest has already passed.
My rendering above still has issues to be solved, but I enjoy the process of CAD and find that it opens up other avenues for creative design.
