Everyone gathered around a table and took out their lunches. I had nothing so I sketched them and whoever else I could see.

I rejoined the weekday NYC Urban Sketchers at the tables. It was now cloudy and not so bright so I sat with Allen and sketched some buildings on the corner of 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue. The large, iconic Flatiron Building loomed to the left of these buildings. I managed to ignore it.

I walked back through the park and spotted the weekday NYC Urban Sketchers at tables and sat for awhile looking around trying to decide what to sketch. It was too bright and my eyes were still fully dilated so I headed off to find some more shade.

Earlier in the park I had noticed a very tall man with a very chubby large dog standing very still facing in the same direction. I commented to him that they looked like they were waiting for a bus. He showed me a hawk that was high up in one of the trees. Suddenly it swooped down, grabbed a mouse, looked around as if considering its location and swiftly took its prey up into the trees again. Nature next to the Flatiron Building and zillions of tourists, a loudspeaker announcing contest winners, a Shake Shack and all sorts of lunchers.

Sketched from direct observation. Color added later at home. Moleskine cahier, pen, Pitt brush pens.

I arrived at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue at exactly 11:00 and walked around Madison Square Park looking for the weekday NYC Urban Sketchers. Couldn’t find anyone so I found a shady bench and sketched some people

The office was crowded so I figured I’d be there for about two hours. I brought out iPat and settled down.

To my surprise, after sketching her again, things started zipping along and I was all finished in one hour. A first. I had plenty of time to take a bus downtown instead of getting on the subway.
