Today the NYC Urban Sketchers met at the Hispanic Society of America in Washington Heights in northern Manhattan. It was an interesting museum inside and out, and was formerly the Audibon estate.
I started with a sketch of the Tomb of Gutierre de la Cueva, Bishop of Palencia from the 16th century.
I also sketched part of a statue nearby.
Here is Susan sketching at the other end of the room.
Mark was sketching in the room next to us.
I moved upstairs and sketched the view of the room below...too many arches!!! lol
I included Jimmy sketching across from me, James sketching downstairs, and the security guard watching all of us.
This is the Royal Arms of Spain, ca. 1700-1799
We had lunch at the Restaurante La Libertad on Broadway.
I sketched a man at the bar while we waited for our food.
Here are a few sketchers working at our table. Everyone eats and sketches.
We went back to the museum for one last sketch. I did a cabinet full of tin-glazed earthenware from Puebla de los Angles, Mexico, ca 1750-1799.
