Fridays are Drawing on Location days aka an entire day spent sketching outside the studio aka heaven. These are pretty big, so they’re just shot with my phone instead of scanned.

The quick sketches on bottom left are at the Chelsea Market, and the majority of them are from memory after getting a “flash” of a person walking by. I’m starting to do this more in order to force myself to draw from memory as well as actually “seeing” what I’m drawing instead of just purely observing something.

The top drawing is of Batala NYC playing on the High Line. The bottom right is along the newly opened section of the High Line that wraps around the Hudson Yards train depot.
