A Couple Of Sundays Ago

I received, in the mail, a stapled multi-page booklet printed on nice card-stock from the alumni department of a college. It was in a long landscape format so I simply cut off most of it into a size I prefer to work on. I prepared the pages (see end of this post) and brought it along with me one Sunday.

The day was spent with the NYC Urban Sketchers downtown at South Street Seaport. We met up at the Titanic Memorial in a small park on Water Street. I arrived late because I was distracted as soon as I exited the subway. I finally found the sketchers sketching.
Lunch time and sketching on the pier while we waited for 1:00.
That's when we boarded the schooner Pioneer. We were joining up with a group, Draw-Mania!, who organized this outing. There were also three models. Lots of sketching opportunities while, sails up, we headed towards the Statue of Liberty and back. We were all sketching the boat, each other, the models and the skyline. The weather was perfect.
Sketched on location; text and color (I took liberties with the color) added later.

Stapled booklet from a college alumni dept. (rec'd in mail); collaged with some old book pages; painted with one coat of white acrylic; pencil and/or Sharpie Ultra Fine pen; Pitt brush pens.


  1. Looks like you had a great time sketching all the activity on the boat. Nice!!

  2. Delicious color, striking design, and reflections of a nice afternoon... Sorry I missed it!
