Sketching MOMA PS1

Spring is here and it was nice - but not nice enough to be outside sketching with the group.  Fierce winds were the order of the day.  Fortunately Peggy Roalf planned a wonderful indoor day for us.

It was my first visit to PS1 and while I enjoyed the museum visit I was stumped on what to sketch.  The first room I visited turned out to the be the most interesting.  It was a room filled the steam heating and hot water pipes that serviced the building.  All the pipes had been painted a golden yellow color and seemed to glow in the semi dark room like holy objects.

After we were done at PS1 we walked to the LIC Bar,  a cozy neighborhood watering hole.  Urban Sketchers took over the back where we conducted our Show and Tell sharing the work we'd done that day.

I did a quick sketch of Nick as he was busy sketching some other people in our group.   A group of architects came in and ended up sitting out our long table. Luis chatted them up telling them all about Urban Sketching, while I sketched one of them.

  2. Nice sketches, Mark!!! I think if I had gone there it would have been a bit too much "deja vu" being back in a NYC public school. lol
