SketchCrawl #24 - Governors IslandSunday, September 20, 2009
This time, the NYC group chose Governors Island as the SketchCrawl venue. The weather could not have been more perfect!!
Before heading down there for the SketchCrawl meet-up near Castle Williams, stopped at Republic on Union Square for some pad thai. Sketched the view looking north toward 18th Street while waiting:
Since M had brought along his folding bike, we rode with the bicyclists on the ferry going over to Governors Island. The boat was packed with people and their two-wheelers:
There was a festival on the island. These sculptures loomed over the tents and people:
I set up my folding stool in a patch of shade near Castle Williams and sketched the view of the Manhattan skyline beyond:
As I took the ferry back to Manhattan, I sketched the bright red structure above the ferry dock:
It was a very fun SketchCrawl day indeed!
