A lady on the other side of the restaurant had a tough time staying awake. It was very early.

Shawne, as part of NYC Urban Sketchers, taught a 3 hour workshop on using our words with our artwork. The homework consisted of doing a sketch the day before we all met up in a lovely Kip’s Bay apartment. Theoretically I had a sketch from the Saturday, (I was sketching for 8 hours at the Draw-athon), but I opted to use a last minute sketch made just before I arrived at the workshop locale. Shawne taught all of us a very interesting technique to find the memories, flavors, sounds, etc., that were present at the time of sketching and how to translate it all into words.

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.)
