Tudor City and UN Plaza, Manhattan

The Central Park Sketching and Art Meetup Group went to Tudor City, in Manhattan, this weekend.  It is a lovely apartment complex with quiet parks embedded among the buildings, and it overlooks the United Nations Plaza.  Here are the two sketches that I did while we were there.   

The Tudor buildings have wonderful architecture and I was captivated by this stained glass window, with gold lights shining through.


For our second sketch session, my friend Benedicte and I sat on a bench overlooking the UN Plaza and sketched the buildings.  The group will next sketch in Battery Park, another place in the City that I don't know very well.




That window is lovely, Shirley, and in your style it is so serene...

Gorgeous sketches =) Love the angles!

Very nice sketches. I haven't tried doing complicated buildings yet.

These are really nice - I especially love the window. I'm so terrible at doing architectural drawings and I'm so impressed with folks who can ... like you! nancy

I do like the window - they are so complex aren't they? But you captured it beautifully.

Wonderful sketches, Shirley!! And, I'll be seeing you in a couple of weeks!!
