The New York Urban Sketchers had big plans for yesterday, Saturday. There was a morning location, an afternoon location and an in-between location.
Instead of joining them for the morning figure drawing on Spring Street I opted instead to revisit the American Indian Museum NY since the George Morrison exhibit is closing. I wanted to remember facets of this particular sketch so I quickly copied it using a very simple app so that I wouldn't get bogged down.
I saw this exhibition last October and was blown away by the beauty of his artwork but I had very little time and wasn't able to copy anything. Yesterday time wasn't a problem.
This caught my eye in another gallery:
I hopped back on the #1 subway to the Times Square station. For the in-between portion we were meeting in Times Square. I called Mark to find out where, got his answering machine, didn't spot anyone I knew among the million or so tourists milling about on Broadway so I went to the 8th floor lobby of the Marriott on Broadway and 45th Street. While I waited, I sketched a couple of people as they waited for each other to use the rest room - they were a bit too quick. Mark returned my call and soon enough there he and a few other sketchers were.
We talked for awhile and then walked to 39th Street where a unique sketching experience awaited.
iPad; Penultimate, ArtRage and Sketch Club apps; New Trent Arcadia stylus. Only the text in the George Morrison pieces were added later at home. Everything else was completed while in the museum.
