A brief trip to NY solely for the purpose of sketching with my London friend. We had a busy weekend of walking, sketching and refreshments. The Ace Hotel put us up in hipster style and we could walk or subway to every location on out list. Of course, our list turned out to be more ambitious than we could possibly cover. But trying was fun. Pictured here: taxis in front of the hotel, Madame X and Dr. Pozzi by J. Singer Sargent at the Met., and yet more taxis. Yes the Guggenheim is a wonky sort of building, my rendering adds to the effect.
