EDM Challenge #219 and Sketchcrawl Today

EDM Challenge # 219:  Draw a Window

Today several of us who met in Danny Gregory's class had another sketchcrawl in New York City.  We met in Grand Central Station and while I waited for them I sketched a ticket window for this week's Everyday Matters Challenge.


The weather was wonderful, so we walked over to Bryant Park, behind the New York Public Library,  and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful flowers that were all in bloom, and the hundreds of chairs that are set up around the park for all to enjoy this fabulous area.  There were thousands of tulips, daffodils, pansies and hyacinths in flower beds and urns.  I was immediately drawn to the beds of pink tulips.


The Empire State building is visible above buildings on 41st St from the Park and we all did a sketch of the view.  In my sketch it is impossible to realize how tall it is behind the foreground buildings and trees.  I'll have to return to the scene and try again someday.


I ended the morning sitting in front more flowers - to document again the joy of sketching in the sun, on a warm Spring day, enjoying the company of Annie and Kathleen and surrounded by flowers in this fabulous urban setting.




This illustrated journal series cries out SPRING! Hat's off for the way you rendered the Empire State Building.

Wow! That was a productive sketch crawl. I particularly love the ticket window.

Thanks for the wonderfully cheerful trip around NY! I wish I was there! The tulip garden sounds fabulous. How neat that they set up chairs just for viewing the flowers, as if they were a concert!

Thank you for visiting my page! This is where I want to go with my drawings...color! These are wonderful!

Well you certainly captured the spring time beauty in these sketches!!

What a great day - and you did a beautiful job on these sketches!

We are all drooling, Shirley. What a beautiful day it must have been in that setting and I think your Empire state Building is a winner. Now I'm going to enjoy scrolling back through all the posts I've missed recently.

Have to admit I'm a bit jealous of a spring sketchcrawl around New York. Your drawings made me hungry for good weather.
