Somehow yesterday I forgot to include the photo of me that Mark took during our "show and tell." We always share our sketches at the end of the day, since so many of us are sketching different subjects.
We left Governors Island as a group last Saturday, getting back to the mainland about 4. Everyone else scurried off to their lives but I figured I'm in the city so I might as well do one more sketch. I wanted to sketch the Battery Maritime Building which is where the ferry to Governors Island departs from. I like the design and details to the building. Of course the best view would be across the street...but that meant across 2 sections of roadway and a wall...I was sure that I wouldn't be able to see anything if I sat down. Instead I sat off to the right between the Staten Island Ferry Building and the Maritime Building as close to the street as possible. It was like sitting in a wind tunnel. lol I really had to hold onto everything. This view came with a bit of construction and a fun ice cream truck too.
I headed up to Penn Station only to find out I had just missed the train to Ronkonkoma. So I made use of my time sketching some of the commuters inside the station.
On the LIRR coming home I was able to sketch a few of the passengers. This lady I could see between the seat backs in front of me.
This man was on the opposite side of the train where there are seats facing each way. His little girl was fast asleep in his lap. I ran out of paper to fit her completely.
