The reading room is shaded by trees and umbrellas. There are selections of books and newspapers and people actually reading.

Workshop was finished and while we all waited for the throw down and group photo I sketched some random people ” over there”. Well one of them was actually a sketcher who didn’t realize we were all gathering together.

Sketchers listening to and watching Katie’s demonstration. Soon after we all disbursed to do our tiny sketches. I found a wall at the perfect height to sketch on, shade, a view and started to draw.

While Katie was demonstrating I started sketching the workshop attendees, occasionally getting up to see what she was doing. It was hard to get a glimpse but I did pay attention to what she was saying. I happened to have a folded, blank, one-page book in my purse, ahem, just in case the opportunity for non-workshop sketching arose. The wrong hand is very eager to take advantage of the proper hand’s circumstances.

I wandered into the backyard of Bonanza’s looking for some people to sketch. Happy. In my comfort zone.

The aromas wafting across the street from the little red shack were making my tummy rumble.

Another tiny book – this one made entirely with the wrong hand. The proper hand is still hindered by the plaster encasing its wrist.

Suzala picked me up last Sunday and drove us to join the NYC Urban Sketchers in Oyster Bay, a small town on the north shore of Long Island. I found some shade, sat on my stool, tiny book clipped to a piece of cardboard resting on my purse which was resting on my knees and started sketching buildings with the bewildered wrong hand.

The whole little book:

This is a little one page book I created a couple of months ago. I referred to photos I snapped using iPat as I walked down Sixth Avenue on my way to Penn Station.
