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!

For Mr. Bowie

Danielle Kroll - Pretty Things

I was just going through old files on my backup hard drive and found this image I made a few years ago. I usually don’t get emotional over celebrity deaths but Bowie was an exception for me. I’m thankful for all the inspiration he brought to this world.

I’ve been going through my old sketchbooks and photographing my favorite spreads. Makes me think that I should start dating things…. all the years of work are starting to blend together!

Danielle Kroll - The Cabin

Since 2010 my art school friends have met at the same cabin during the same weekend in February. It’s a special time to just sit around and enjoy each other’s company. The cabin is right on Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos and the view is really  magical. I was able to get in some peaceful painting time on Saturday with my dear friend Jamie Straw. We talked about art while sharing a space heater and a kettle of tea. Can’t wait for next year!
