Times Square


Sketching and painting Times Square is overwhelming. We were in Manhattan yesterday for a show. We went in early for the AWS Watercolor Show and I brought along my supplies to do something while I was in the city. I lucked out and got a chair in the pedestrian mall in Times Square. I eliminated a lot from this scene. lol This is about 5 x 7.


Please check my fake blog to see what Angelina is doing.

I can't even imagine trying to sketch all the activity in Times Square but you managed beautifully.

I find it the oddest thing that people just sit in the middle of times square. But I do love your sketch. Very cool.

Helen - I sat there just shaking my head. lol

Carol - I didn't think I would like the idea of sitting there in the middle of Times Square, but it was a perfect spot to sketch. I even had a table. lol I don't know how I find the time to do both either.

Lin - Thanks!!
