See last week's sketches: Pete's Tavern
This week we're at the Old Town Bar and have a 12:00 start time.
Old Town Bar (opened 1892)
18th street, between park ave and broadway
Start at 12:00.
|It was a cold rainy Saturday, and Peter's Tavern was the |
perfect inviting place to meet.
|Marie and Lance got busy sketching the Tavern|
and I got busy drawing them.
|Good food and drinks|
and almost continuous sketching.
What could be better?
|Luis spent time sketching at the bar.|
When he returned to our table
I did this sketch.
|A couple at the next table.|
The Tavern had paper table clothes and it wasn't too long
before we were sketching on the table.
|During the winter months, Brooklyn Flea antique and vintage marketplace, |
is held inside the landmark Williamsburgh Savings Bank,
Although it has a beautiful interior, that would make you think more of church
than a bank - it's sketching people that always attracts me.
|This couple sat opposite me in the crowded cafeteria. |
She looked so sharp and he looked like he'd had a long hard night.
|We chatted with a mother and daughter.|
Mom was in from Ohio for a long weekend
and the flea market seemed like a perfect place
to be on a cold overcast February day.
|Hassan had a great waxed mustache and dressed |
with a lot of flair.
One of the sketchers mentioned that there
is a beard and mustache contest in NY.
Got to check that out!
|This mother an child were part of Hassan's group. |
There was a second daughter but they left
before I had a chance to sketch her
|The food lines were long. I used my stipula passaporte w/ catfish blue noodlers ink|
|Thanks to Marie for suggesting liquid graphite|
|Just liquid graphite|
|Graphite and lexington grey ink|
|On a cold February day it was great to be inside the Morgan Library sketching the art lovers|
|The only problem sketching art lovers is that they don't stand still|
|The doodle on the upper left was already on the page before the sketch|
|Quick Sketch of Marie who joined us for the first time.|
|Woman wearing a great hat was sitting across from us in the cafeteria. |
She stared for awhile trying to figure out why I was looking at her.
|Luis also joined us for the first time. He has the coolest glasses.|
|Drawing a drawing is interesting...|
|As time passed, the crowds grew|
|A varied collection of surrealists from all around the world|
|My surreal lunch...automatic drawing|
