New York

New York

Pencil (3B)

I love Manhattan, the sounds, the way it smells, the out of the way places, the great deals on cloths. This is a ‘quick’ sketch from a photo (i’m obviously not there tonight …. *sigh*) but I wanted something quick and without drama

I like the shapes that buildings make in relation to perspective, the corners and angles are so interesting. the light the day I took this was very flat so there are no ‘hard’ shadows that the sun would make. As a matter of fact the photo was taken about 24 hours before Sandy made land fall in lower Manhattan causing all that trouble.

This was the view form the fire escape outside the window of a little apartment we stayed in.

Awesome….I could wake up to that every day as easily as the view from the deck at the cottage.
