My watercolor paint was spilling on the paper, and I was distracted with trying to narrow down things to draw, so I made the best of it. Here is a page of sketches from Biltmore Hotel, where I had fun sketching the details of ornate Beaux-Arts style decorations and lamps, and struggled to capture strong light and dark contrasts created by bright daylight seeping into rich interior. The sweeps of brownish color are "free-form" accidents.
The group moved onto Grand Central Market for lunch and outdoor sketching. Some of us went to Central Library for a little more sketching. (If you want to get a different take on those places, you can find my sketches at previous sketchcrawl at Grand Central Market and sketchcrawl at Central Library). I enjoyed drawing more architectural details and seeing a park and lush greenery next to highrises.
