After we were all done in The Hispanic Society a bunch of us walked several blocks downtown on Broadway and discovered a nice place to have beer, wine, etc. for an hour or so. Show and tell finishes up the NYC Urban Sketchers day.

After lunch (ha! Second breakfast) I had to copy an El Greco.

Gridded notebook and Pencil/Pitt fine pen, photographed using iPad and then imported into Sketch Club for color.
Sketched from direct observation. Color added later at home referring to a photograph I took of the painting.

After Au Bon Pain people watching I got on the #1 train and headed uptown to meet up with the NYC Urban Sketchers at The Hispanic Society. After a morning of sketching (to follow) we went across the street for lunch in a very nice Spanish restaurant. I, still in breakfast mode, had blueberry pancakes (hey! It was on the menu. Not my fault.). As is the obsessive compulsion of NYC Urban Sketchers at mealtime we all sketched each other until the food arrived at which time everyone temporarily closes sketchbooks.

After lunch we went back to the museum for more sketching. Joy never made it to lunch. She was engrossed on her Urban Collaging.

I went into the city on a Saturday and Sunday one recent weekend. Both days I ate breakfast in Au Bon Pain because Central Market seems to be either “no more” or will eventually emerge brand new from behind the construction plywood that has taken over a few storefronts. Fingers crossed that it comes back in a form that allows for lingering. Anyway, the old man who sleeps at a table with a cup of coffee and newspaper in front of him was there both days. He sleeps soundly and doesn’t shift and twitch. This is my fourth drawing of him which I did on the Saturday. On Sunday he was sound asleep at a central table, across the room, facing me. A rare view of him but, after weighing my priorities, I decided to eat instead of sketch. Well, I got a surprise, he woke up, gathered his coffee cup and paper and left. Too bad for me, I thought. But wait. A little while later he returns and sits at a closer table and opens a new cup of coffee and a buttered roll and eats his breakfast. When he finished he checked the contents of an envelope – remember when you’d get paid cash in an envelope? – that’s what flashed through my mind. Then he fell asleep again but now I know he is a pretty spry (when awake) Very Old man.

At another table this woman emptied her purse of all sorts of papers, put them in a big pile on the table, tore them into itty bitty shredder-like pieces, and filled a large size coffee cup to over-flowing.
