New York City, NY, USA [RESULTS]

Postby sunilo » Sun Aug 01, 2010 10:45 pm

There wasn't a group to meet up with this time around, so I wandered alone with my sketchbook. I headed over to Forest Park in Queens.


Below are some random things I sketched when I only had a minute or two (or 30 seconds) to work.

An old carousel in the park. It was closed even though it was a beautiful day!

Leisurely drawn while sitting with some friends in the park.

Last drawing of the day. I was tired and back in Brooklyn...but I still took a few minutes to sketch the sunset.

All in all, it was a productive day of drawing. Hopefully I'll get to sketch with the group in a couple of months.

Hey Sunil,
Nice sketches! Sorry I couldn't join in this time; went to Newport, RI, so I did a solo sketchcrawl there.

Thanks, Suma! Hopefully we'll have more people around for the next NYC crawl.

Hi, Sunil! Nice sketches! I grew up in Queens, I think I even rode that carousel when I was a kid.

Thanks! It's a fun park to play in as a kid (or adult)!

Sorry, Ushio. Didn't see your post until it was too late. :( I think we may have been the only two sketchcrawlers in the city this past weekend. I hope you had a good visit to New York.

Your sketches are awesome. I love the spread of portraits and the burrito store.

Glad you 2 got out there! Participation seemed low world wide this time; heat wave? summertime blues? We started our hike late with 11 and were down to 2 in a couple hours (the lake and lunch were too enticing I guess) Anyway, good for you!
Sunilo; the fenced carousel is an intriguing drawing.
Ushio; I like your interiors

Hi Sunil,
I enjoyed your blog! I worked a short time as a department store designer in California in the 80's; some stores are aware of the need to direct the customer's eye's, etc to product, so you could think of the store as a big installation art project.
Anyway, I liked your sketch of the store.
