Yesterday my friend, Susan and I joined the NYC Urban Sketchers in the city. We parked and took the subway in to meet everyone, so we had the opportunity to do a few subway sketches on the way.
Bryant Park was our location for sketching. Mark proposed a "pivot party" where you sit in one location and sketch, then turn or pivot your chair to get another view. I did that for a few sketches, but it was just easier to put my chair where the view caught my eye. We had a good turnout of sketchers...about 24 people were there at some point.
My first sketch was of the Bryant Park Fountain. I sketched this in watercolor pencil and then added regular watercolors and more watercolor pencil.
Next I did a sketch of the carousel with the green areas in front.
Then it was time for a lunch break and sharing some of our work. One of the sketchers, Santi, was visiting from Barcelona. He has been sketching all over the city and did a wonderful accordion sketchbook that he shared with us.
It is always great to see the sketches that other people have done!
