Urban Sketchers Gathered for Lunch: We met on 5th Ave opposite the Guggenheim Museum, and had lunch in the Gardens behind the Cooper Hewitt Museum.  These were 3 of the artists sitting across from me in the gardens.

Park Person: My Husband and I went to the Boat Basin (Conservatory Garden) in Central Park early on a Sunday morning.  While drinking coffee and eating a croissant I sketched this person who was very busy editing a manuscript - and she stayed long enough to be drawn and painted.

Urban Sketchers June 22, 2019

Drawing along Museum Mile:  The group met in front of the Guggenheim Museum, and Urban Sketchers spread out along 5th Avenue throughout the day.

Two sections of my Accordion Sketchbook:  This is my USK accordion book which I reserved for NYC paintings.  These are two sections done on June 22nd.

Figure Drawing June 21, 2019

I love two minute sketches - they are more free and spontaneous for me.  Twenty minute drawings - the longest in the venues I draw - are sometimes torture.  I'm done by 10-15 minutes and keep fiddling with lines. This was one of my 2 minutes sketches today at Figure Drawing.

Five Minute Sketch: This was a full body pose, but I chose to limit the amount shown, just to post the face of the model and amazing hair.

Ten Minute Sketch:  Thin, but muscular, and I was even able to see and paint his vertebrae.

Twenty Minute Pose:  Devin was a very relaxed model and I would love to draw him again.  He told me afterward that he likes to "mix it up and next time he may have his dreadlocks loose!"

Art Day in Battery Park City - June 19, 2019

My friend and I went to Wagner Park under threats of rain and thunderstorms, but we actually made it through the morning session, had lunch, and were able to sketch the model for the first hour before the rain began. 

Flowers blooming in Wagner Park: I love seeing the various flowers in bloom each time I visit Wagner Park.  The staff keep the flower gardens looking beautiful, and there are always a few new types of flowers since the week before.

Figure Al Fresco - Brianna

We had one minute warm up sketches, 2 five minute sketches, and 2 ten minute sketches.  While drawing the first few minutes of the 20 minute sketch, rain drops began and we packed up and went to visit an exhibit at the Center for Book Arts - Manhattan's amazing bookbinding/letterpress center.  It poured as we were moving between sites, and were lucky we left the minute that we did.  I was drawing with a watercolor pencil, and the first few rain drops made a mess on my paper.

NYC Urban Sketchers July 15, 2019

The NYC Urban Sketchers spent Saturday in Greenwich Village - first on W10th St and then in Washington Square Park.  It was a gorgeous day, and we were spread out down W10th from the Church on the corner of 5th Ave all the way to 6th Ave. 

The Tower of the Church of the Ascension: This was our meeting place at 10 AM and it was a perfect spot to start sketching.

The Emma Lazarus House at 18 W10th St.  Emma lived here with her family in the mid-19th C and is known for her poem "The New Colossus," words of which were eventually added in bronze to the base of the Statue of Liberty.  "“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...."

Jazz Trio in Washington Square Park:  The Park was full, but we chose a seat where we could draw/paint and listen to wonderful jazz.
