Angel of the Waters, Central Park


The fountain in the "heart of Central Park" commemorates the 1842 opening of the Croton Aqueduct, which was the first dependable supply of pure water in New York City. The original pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem was said to have had healing powers.
I was going more for the feeling of the fountain and Central Park rather than a straight forward drawing, although I tried to keep the original reason for the fountain in mind.
