Meetup Sketching Group
Our Meetup Drawing Group met in Battery Park yesterday in spite of the heat wave and threats of thunderstorms. It is at the tip of Manhattan, and the site of the piers for the Long Island Ferry and boats to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The views across New York Harbor are magnificent.
I did 3 sketchbook pages, each in about 30 minutes. Our leader selects a spot and we are free to wander and select anything we want to draw. The group then meets back after each sketch to lay out their drawings for all to see.
Here are my 3 sketchbook pages: a view across the Harbor, part of one of my favorite statues, and a single flower.
