Urban Sketchers NYC January 12, 2013

We went to the Chelsea Piers and sketched at their two skating rinks.  There were only two problems with the idea:
1)  Skaters almost never stand still.  It's their continuous movement that looks so beautiful.  But it's also their continuous movement that makes them really hard to capture in a drawing.
2)  There was no heated gallery where we were sketching.  It was continuously cold.

One skating rink had figure skaters and the other had teams practicing ice hockey. 

After we went to a restaurant where it was warm and the people sat reasonably still.
