I don't usually go in and meet the NYC Urban Sketchers during the week, but my friend, Wendy (from Australia) and I wanted to sketch in Central Park, especially at Bethesda Fountain. It is a lively spot with beautiful scenery, lots of people, and usually music.
Wendy and I selected the fountain for our first sketch. Here is my sketch.
Here are Wendy and Toi sketching.
Then I did a sketch of the staircase and some of the flowers in bloom.
Here are Wendy and I together by the fountain.
Wendy did some great sketches too. If you would like to see more of Wendy's work, here is a link: http://wendybarrettpainting.blogspot.com
Wendy has also written a book about her challenge to return to sketching and painting. I think most of you would enjoy reading it. The book is available on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Grabbing-Muse-Throat-Wendy-Barrett/dp/0994366000/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1463177376&sr=8-8&keywords=wendy+barrett
