I walked back to Penn Station, circling through Bryant Park on the way.

I walked up to Alexandre Gallery to see the Will Barnet drawings and paintings

Before the workshop began at MoMA. We built things – buildings. I so don’t think in 3-D.

Stefanie biked up to 42nd Street to meet up with her husband and I took the subway downtown to Figure al Fresco. The model was one I had enjoyed before but today found uninspiring. Perhaps it was the massive wind gusts coming off the Hudson River making it Very Cold. Sketchers were leaving as each pose finished so I decided to sketch a bunch of them before everyone departed. I left soon after the model was almost knocked down by the wind and sketch pads went flying.

We walked around some more and spotted a statue that called to the both of us. I have been in this park mucho many times and never noticed it before. Sigh.

At home I used molotow acrylic paint markers to clarify the drawing.

Stefanie and I wandered around the Green Market at Union Square and ended up in the area where the chess players play and people sit on the steps – all sorts of people. I sketched some from the back and she sketched them from the front. While I was doing this a young homeless person, with lovely hair, asked if he could sing to me. He understood that there would be no money forthcoming but chose to sing anyway. Stefanie came over to us and joined the conversation. We left him after awhile and walked around the park looking for the Perfect Bench to sit and draw people. We found it! People sat, ate lunch, left, and were replaced with others over and over. I just sketched whoever was in front of me.

(Union Square 1 was used as Inktober #17 some weeks ago.)
