In the middle of a packed day in Manhattan, it was lovely to spend an hour and a half with the group sketching at Old Town Bar near Union Square. There was a steady stream of models (I mean, bar patrons) to inspire us, and the conversation was spirited and educational, as always!
Instead of my usual watercolors, I brought along a set of Derwent watercolor pencils (a garage sale find from several weeks ago) to color my ink drawings in the Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.
After taking leave of the group, I did a bit of shopping and ended the day at Jones Wood Foundry, a more modern -- but still cozy -- pub on the Upper East Side, savoring sticky toffee pudding while the snow swirled outside. Yum.
