Great Apartment Buildings of New York - November 16, 2013

What a gorgeous day.  The day was perfect for Urban Sketching.  
It allowed us the time to study and appreciate the buildings.

The Dorilton


The details in the first building were endless and fascinating.  
It begs to be simplified.  
I could have spent the day there learning from this building.

The Ansonia
The Ansonia has always been a favorite of mine, but the problem sketching it is there's no obvious great place to stand to take it all in.  Instead I decided to sketch the further tower north of where I stood.



An encounter with an unfriendly doorman persuaded us that sketching the courtyard at the Apthorp wasn't going to happen, ... so we went to the corner and focused on the asymmetric church at the corner.


A quicky sketch looking up 79th Street and then on to lunch.  Between mouthfuls I did a quick sketch of Mia, Svetlana and some guy contemplating his lunch options
