After lunch I painted Yolanda, a new member of the group. The light from the huge windows gave her beautiful skin a glow that I tried to capture.
Then I went scouting for a new Urban Sketch location in the ultra-hip Lower East Side. I went to a bar and and ordered a beer and took out my paints once again. This one was challenging because this place was dark and I winged it with the colors. The guy in the maroon jacket was doing a great job chatting up the Asian lady on the left.
After a few brewskies the place got way too crowded so I stopped in Starbucks to wind down with a hot tea and sketched this guy who was really plugged in:
I couldn't stop sketching. On my way home I sketched this down-on-his-luck sax player on the F Train platform.
Coming back on the F Train I sketched this inebriated couple. I used a waterbrush to get the color in while on the moving train. By this time it was past 9 PM and the day was getting long. This was a 12 hour sketch binge!
