I walked from the Rector Street subway stop to Wagner Park where the Central Park Sketching & Art Meetup Group was gathering for a few hours of sketching. The routine is that Jesse, the organizer, brings us to a location, everyone scatters and draws for about 45 minutes after which we all meet to display our sketches. This procedure is repeated two more times after moving to new locations. Our last site was in South Cove where Figure al Fresco takes place on Wednesdays.
For my first sketch I headed over to the clock tower that I saw for the first time last year after a ferry ride. I took photos of it then knowing I wanted to draw it someday. This was the day. Shirley has the story behind it and a more complete view of the building.
I finished with time to spare so I took advantage of the artist next to me.
Again, if you’re going to sit next to me…..
They were sketching the view across the river. It wasn’t until everybody was gathered together again that I realized he was a young teenager and she was his mother.
iPad, Sketch club and ArtRage apps; New Trent Arcadia stylus. I tweaked the colors later when I was in the Recliner Studio Annex. It is hard to judge the colors when outside, even in the shade. Things were just too pale/pastel-like for my taste. Just couldn’t live with them like that. Nope.
