Inktober 2020 Day 17 - Maritime Sheds and NYC Open House

My Inktober 2020 sketch was done of some sheds on the grounds of the Maritime Museum in Sayville. It was too windy to sit outside so my mobile studio came in very handy. This is the first of the sketches for Inktober this year where I only used hatching for shading. 

The NYC Urban Sketchers used a weekend celebration of architecture with NYC Open House as a way to virtually visit some different buildings and areas of the city. There were a variety of locations that gave virtual tours of their properties. As with all things that the group does, you don't really have to stick to the references that are provided. You can pretty much sketch anything that fits the theme. I used a link to The JAX, a new office space in Long Island City. The buildings are modern and airy and the development has an elevated park-like area with native plants that create a meadow for the tenants and their workers to enjoy. I think it must have wonderful views looking out over to NYC from those huge windows.
