Brewster Gardens

Brewster Gardens were created in the early 1920s, and runs through Plymouth, Massachusetts. The park covers the original garden plot that was granted to Elser William Brewster in 1620. Town Brook, is a 1.5-mile stream running through Brewster Gardens that provided drinking water to the Pilgrims who made their homes adjacent to the brook on Leyden Street. Town Brook’s headwaters are the Billington Sea, a freshwater pond. It also passes by The Plimoth Grist Mill at Jenney Pond and the Brewster Gardens before emptying into Plymouth Harbor. A nature trail runs along the entire length of the brook. This sketch is from the path below the arched bridge that carries Main Street over the gardens. Prismacolor pens with Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook. The black of the inside of the arch became way too dark and I lost all of the color.
