I have tried to designate the pen and ink drawings from a particular ‘Canson’ sketchbook and trip to NYC with the same color border (in this case a light blue and Nov. of 2000 was the trip.)
On a cold November morning Diane took refuge in a coffee shop while I wandered down Park Avenue to find a composition for a sketch. I walked across to the median, turned and Met Life. Grand Central’s Mercury also held the view that this was the time and place to draw a pen and ink in my Canson sketchbook.
It was cold, Diane remembers our breath coming out like great white clouds of smoke. I worked as fast as I could, tried sketching with my gloves on, and finally gave up before I could detail the left building. After retreating back to the coffee shop (Timothy’s, by the way) I wrote the little poem to fill in the unfinished building’s details.
How I love sketching in NYC! ; – )))
I’m continuing to experiment upgrading these sketches to the new RB card format… and making a few ‘improvements’ in PSE.. NOW in 2013 I’m still playing around, this time making tees and icovers from my sketches.
