Referring to a sketch that had been drawn from life using my iPad while in Penn Station, I drew/painted the image on the copper plate that was used in the monotype process. Oil based printing ink, Arches printmaking paper, etching press.

Shirley said “so long” and I went into another gallery and copied another painting. I was going to a Monotype Party at 6:00 so I had some time to kill before catching a Fifth Avenue downtown bus. What better way than sketching?

After lunch Shirley and I crossed the street and entered The Met Breuer. Our destination was the exhibition “Marsden Hartley’s Maine” which ran the gamut from loads of landscapes to many portraits – friends, fishermen and random beach people. I loved all the figurative paintings and some of the landscapes I really liked, but not all. I did find things to copy though and I got a lot of attention while I was doing it.

I had some time before I was to meet Shirley at the coffee shop so I took the bus up to The Met and sat down to copy another figure from this beautiful mural by Pelez. The figures are life-size and astounding. I was able to finish just in time for a quick walk and an on-time entrance in the coffee shop on Madison and 76th.

“They” were telling me that a blizzard was coming the next day so that made me restless to get out of the house. I ended up in Panera with a lemonade and iPat.

For the last sketching session at the Meetup’s 10th Anniversary I returned to the table where I had left my two items – the Pantalooney Sisters – and sat down. Jesse instructed everyone to draw another sketcher. I had already drawn a number of people and the sisters were so excited to be Models in the Big City I could not, in good conscience, ignore them.
