Train Ladies

I went into Manhattan to join the NYC Urban Sketchers this past Saturday. I took the Long Island Railroad and I try to position myself so that I have someone to sketch while I ride. I started with the woman on the right and was ready to do the woman in the middle, but she spent about 10 minutes putting on makeup, so I had to do the woman on the left until she was ready. lol


  1. I took the LIRailroad Saturday but I wasn't the one putting on makeup!!!! Lol. Excellent sketch Joan... I went on a walking tour to see street Art! Very interesting ....then we ate in Chinatown.

  2. I admire the way you consistently use your sketchbook no matter where. Neat to read that both you and Hilda both took the train on Saturday. And what a wonderful destination.

  3. Do you ever go anywhere with out the sketch book? What fun although I think you should have tried getting her while the make up was going on - that would be a hoot.

  4. Hilda, I haven't been to Chinatown in a long time. The walking tour sounds like fun.

    Julie, thanks. I'll have to arrange to meet Hilda some day.

    Val, lol I rarely go anywhere without a sketchbook. At first I was going to try to sketch her putting on the makeup but she was moving her hands too much and blocking her face.
