Danielle Kroll - Swartswood Lake

I spent Labor Day weekend hanging out at my friend’s house on Swartswood Lake, NJ. I did a few drawings from their dock and while kayaking around the lake. There are no motorboats allowed so it’s very peaceful there. And the sunsets…. amazing. I’m not really a huge fan of summer but I felt like this one came and went before I even got a break for a piña colada! I’m looking forward to the fall breeze coming through. It’s perhaps my favorite thing about living around here.

Ladies Drawing Night

August 10, 2016

Last night I packed up a bag full of art supplies and headed to a Ladies Drawing Night in Brooklyn. Myself and a lovely group of lady illustrators spent the evening outside with twinkle lights, wine and plenty of flowers, which is what we were drawing.  Also did you know there’s a Ladies Drawing Night book coming out next week? I make a cameo in one of the chapters about drawing on location.

Check out my drawings from last night here and preorder this amazing book here!

Flowers and Fences

Living in Brooklyn, you don’t really see the most beautiful foliage. But I find that the tiny neighborhood rose gardens in Greenpoint are enough to keep me at ease.
