Urban Sketchers NYC in Bryant Park

I was meeting the Urban Sketchers Group in Bryant Park, behind the New York City Public Library.  When I arrived, there was a photo shoot in the middle of the lawn, which we assume is a publicity shot for the upcoming revival of On The Town.


When I arrived at our meeting spot, I met Valentina, from Palermo, Sicily - someone who just looked up the NYC USK group and showed up!  I love that the International Urban Sketchers Group provides this level of communication worldwide between artists.  Valentina is the artist on the right.




I am using a new accordion watercolor book - with a cover of paste paper that I made last winter.



I used this for painting the Planetarium from the outside, last Thursday, at the American Museum of Natural History, and for several paintings this week when Urban Sketchers met in Bryant Park. 





These paintings, the Southwest Porch Patio, and the Fountain are from Bryant Park. 






As I was leaving Bryant Park I took a photo of another fascinating NYC site.   Any ideas??





Absolutely love every picture. Funny how the person in the last picture is not getting any attention. Thanks for sharing your art!

Fantastic sketching, it's a small world these days although I don't know valentina myself. I've never met anyone from palermo who sketched!

The paste-paper book is coming along really well. And now I'm curious about how to make paper like that... going to search around on your website in hopes you documented it.

Liz Steel came to Newcastle (Australia)to do a travel sketching workshop yesterday. Liz and I found ourselves referring to your art a number of times during the workshop. You're inspiring others far away!
