Ended up on same F car but she exited quickly at Bergen so got just a quick pose. Luckily her bench mate sat reading very intently the rest of the way to 4th Ave.
New York, the Flatiron building as seen from Madison square. It’s the view 180 degrees from my previous sketch of the Empire State building. I did the sketch sunday a week ago, it took me about 40 minutes to draw and paint with my waterbrush.
New York, Empire State Building. Last week we treated ourselves on a short week New York. What a fantastic city. The E.S.B. was just around the corner from the hotel, I sketched and painted this from Madison Square, while fighting off the jetlag. http://renefijten.blogspot.com/
3 train, point blank sketching, her hair looked like it had a real world underpainting.
Sleeping on a Brooklyn College Flatbush Ave. Bound 2 Train. Got lazy with the jacket pattern, but there were a lotta little squares.
