NYC WWSC 38 [RESULTS]

Postby nycSketch » Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:14 am

Quite a few people showed up for WWSC 38 in NYC. Not all made it to the end, but everyone got a chance to sketch. Sketches to follow.

It was a lot of fun to meet up with the NYC Urban Sketchers again. They are a great group!

I sketched on my train ride into the city this morning.

I met up with the group on 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue opposite the Port Authority Bus Terminal. We did one sketch outside before we went inside to get warm. Here is the view.

Inside I sketched one of the escalators and some of the people standing around waiting.

We ventured outside again to sketch near Times Square on 42nd Street.

Our next stop was Grand Central Station. We sat in the food court to sketch. I did a view through one of the arches and some of the people at the tables.

About 5 o'clock I left the group and headed back to Penn Station to catch my train home. I had a little time to sketch the Long Island Railroad waiting area before my train was leaving.

Thanks everyone! Sketching with the group has forced me to sketch faster than usual so I can keep up as we move from one location to another. It is fun to sketch in a group. Hopefully everyone else will post their sketches soon.

I really loved the vibrancy in your people at the train station. . .how do you do it so quickly? Also the color of your paper adds a certain interest. . .I'm inspired!! Look forward to seeing more later. thanks

WOW! Joan, wish I could have joined you. Can't believe how many sketches you did, considering all the walking, and a lunch break besides! They all look so good, but I think my favorite is the people waiting at the Port Authority. You are a brave person for hanging out there. :clap: :clap: :clap:

And Richard! Another WOW! You know my favorite is the button! The Times Square sketches show the speed, vibrancy, and energy of the city. :clap: :clap: :clap:
Looks like there were some new faces. Wish I could have made it. :( :cry: Maybe next time :wave:

This was my only painting of the day, a frantic half hour of ducking customers so as to not interfere with business. After I left the group at about 2:30, I returned to this grocery to score lunch - some excellent spinach pie - and to stock up on provisions.

This fellow approached Jason and me as we sat in Times Square, complimented our work, and then began proselytizing. We humored him with insightful questioning and let him go at it while we sketched him! A fair exchange.

I wasn't able to meet up with the NYC group in the morning but ended up doing a daylong dual-state sketchcrawl.

I started off with a quick sketch over breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien in Stamford, Connecticut, before going to a few local garage sales.

At one of them I scored a set of unused watercolor pencils, among other art supplies, so I brought them along with me to my next stop -- Brooklyn, New York, where I met my friend Alison. We had lunch and sketched each other (here's Alison's sketch of me):

Image


Then I sketched the expansive view from her window, with the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in the distance:

We went up a few flights of stairs to the roof, where we enjoyed breathtaking views of the sunset over Brooklyn and Manhattan. I quickly sketched two views before my fingers began to freeze (watercolor added later, of course!):

Here's Alison's sketch of the sunset:

When we went back down to warm up, I drew her daughter practicing piano (finally broke out those watercolor pencils):

Around 6:15 I headed back to Connecticut so I could catch The Sig Brothers playing at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford -- got a prime seat right in front of the band so I could draw them as we enjoyed the music:
