New York: Last bits

Here are a few more sketches from New York City to wrap up this summer series.

From the Camp show at the Met. Fabulous, fun costumes. nyc_camp1.jpg

And a coffee at the elegant Neue Galerie after visiting the Klimts.

Great South Indian food at the Flushing Temple Canteen in Queens.

Train people on my favorite line, the 6 line.

Lombardi’s, the oldest pizza joint in Manhattan.

And a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge (no sketch that day) and a detour through the office of the City Clerk, where newly marrieds posed before a photo of City Hall.

And then we were headed for our flight back home.

    You can capture the essence of people very well! All the pages are great but my favorite are the train people. In the bustle of activity you hold the moment with your sketches…sooooo nice!

  5. Suhita, I’d like to ask how you hold your sketchbook, pen, water and watercolour palette, when you’re sketching out and about. I made a board like the one Liz Steel and Marc Taro Holmes use, but I only really use it when I can sit down, get all the kit out and set it up! So for example when you were at the exhibition at the Met, how did you manage? And at the restaurant, did you have it all out on the table? I’d love to be able to do some quick watercolour sketches but other than using watercolour pencils and a waterbrush I can’t work out how you and others do it! Thank you.
