New York City [RESULTS]

Post by Joan T » Mon Oct 26, 2015 10:22 pm

The NYC Urban Sketchers met at Washington Square Park in NYC for the 49th World Wide SketchCrawl. Through the course of the day we had about 30 people participate, some for the entire day and some for part of the day. Of course the most famous part of the park is the famous Washington Square Arch.

Image

In addition to the usual cast of characters in the park on Saturday like the musicians, dancers, religious converters, and the bird man and lady, there was a protest against officer-involved killings, brutality and mass imprisonment dubbed “Rise Up October. Protestors with signs were everywhere and a large contingent of police officers. All the activity made it a very interesting day.

Here are my sketches from the day.
I began with a sketch of some passengers on the subway ride.
Image

When I arrived at the park I did a sketch of the arch itself.
Image

There was a great view of the Freedom Tower across the park.
Image

I tried to capture a bit of the protest too.
Image

My last sketch was of the fountain and the activity around it.
Image

Here are some photos from our day.

Here are sketches by the talented Jeff Levine.

Sophie, thanks so much!

Bh Yoo, thank you. You need to visit and come sketching with us.

Mark, LOL I did see that dog with the bird lady and he didn't scare one pigeon away...not much of a watchdog I guess.
