After lunch we continued sketching in Bryant Park. There was a sketch in every direction you looked. This woman was sitting right in front of me...a perfect spot for a model.
I turned about 180 degrees from above and sketched a view of the umbrellas and sandwich kiosk.
This is one of my favorite sketches of the day. It shows the scope across the lawn in the middle of Bryant Park. The building behind the trees is the NY Public Library, an impressive spot on its own.
Around 3:30 those of us who were left gathered around for a "throw down" of one of our sketches.
Here is the collection...just one sketch per person showing.
And finally a group photo.
Most of the group dispersed at that point but a few of us headed down the street to have a drink. That was followed by a shopping trip to Kinokuniya, a great Japanese store that has a nice collection of art supplies...something none of us can resist.
