So sorry I missed posting yesterday. This one is a bit long so I hope it makes up for it.
On Saturday the NYC Urban Sketchers took the ferry from downtown Manhattan to Governors Island. This is a small island between Manhattan and Brooklyn and is car-free with an old fort, some lovely old houses, and great views back to the city.
I did a quick ink sketch on the ferry ride which lasts all of about 7 minutes.
Our first stop was Colonel's Row where there are some wonderful houses that were once used for the military officers.
While we were on the island a Civil War Reenactment was taking place. I caught some of the "soldiers" during their break from firing the cannon.
Before leaving I had time for a quick ink sketch of the skyline.
