Sketching at Old Town Bar, March 2

Saturday afternoon at Old Town Bar, New York, NY
In the middle of a packed day in Manhattan, it was lovely to spend an hour and a half with the group sketching at Old Town Bar near Union Square. There was a steady stream of models (I mean, bar patrons) to inspire us, and the conversation was spirited and educational, as always!

Instead of my usual watercolors, I brought along a set of Derwent watercolor pencils (a garage sale find from several weeks ago) to color my ink drawings in the Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.

After taking leave of the group, I did a bit of shopping and ended the day at Jones Wood Foundry, a more modern -- but still cozy -- pub on the Upper East Side, savoring sticky toffee pudding while the snow swirled outside. Yum. Diners at Jones Wood Foundry, New York, NY


  1. 1. Great to see you on Saturday.
    2. Even greater that you posted your pictures. I also did one of the guy at the bar with the interesting hat.
    3. You mentioned you went to the Jones Wood Foundry after you left. We're keeping a list of ideas for future sketch sites. Would love to add yours.

  2. Suma, you did a great job on these..nice work with the wc pencils. I hope I can get back in to sketch with the group soon.
