I have my own version of having a GREAT time when I travel. On one trip to New York City I brought my collapsible canvas stool w/ shoulder strap and sketchbooks and pen and ink pens in the pockets. Then I walked the streets of Manhattan and paid attention to building details. When I found one I liked, combined with a spot I could unfold my stool out of the way of other pedestrians, I’d begin to sketch. It’s amazing how friendly and curious New Yorkers’ are, I had both wonderful looks, comments and even full blown conversations while busy with my drawing.
FOR THIS SKETCH I set my stool across 5th Ave. from the Peninsula hotel by a fire hydrant right by the curb. I thought surely I’d be out of the busy sidewalk activity as well as have a great undisturbed view of this iconic hotel with its magnificent carved stone details. Yet, a UPS truck pulled up and blocked my view of the drawing I’d begun for over 15 minutes. My compensation was a well dressed divorce lawyer (I could tell from his arrogant cell phone conversation) came over and looked at my work. He then regaled me with the history of the Hotel. Oh, I love NY!
Drawn in my 5 × 8 Canson recycled paper sketchbook.
