We went to the Chelsea Piers and sketched at their two skating rinks. There were only two problems with the idea:
1) Skaters almost never stand still. It's their continuous movement that looks so beautiful. But it's also their continuous movement that makes them really hard to capture in a drawing.
2) There was no heated gallery where we were sketching. It was continuously cold.
|One skating rink had figure skaters and the other had teams practicing ice hockey.|
|After we went to a restaurant where it was warm and the people sat reasonably still.|
