An Afternoon with the CPDSA in Central Park

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

This is a drawing from the afternoon with Liz Steel from Urban Sketchers and Veronica Lawlor from studio1482.  I call this guy, (he doesn’t skate), Martini Man, because “he’s shaken, not stirred.”  I drew him with consistent up and down sharp edged lines.  He stands in the central area by the DJ and jiggers himself […]

Last week Veronica Lawlor and I went down to the Halloween Parade in the Village to make some drawings.  We had a great time drawing together!  My niece, Alison was also there with her friend, Trinka.  It was one wild and crazy costume after another.  Great night.

Drawings from the Puerto Rican Day Parade

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

I was headed to Central Park today to make some drawings but discovered the Puerto Rican Day Parade instead! What a surprise, as I had assumed the parade would be long over, but apparently there were about 25 additional floats this year, so it was still going strong in the afternoon. I made a few […]

Musician’s hands

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

This musician was playing in Central Park the other day. I liked drawing his hands. His face is great to draw too! His hands and fingers look like bird’s wings!

NOT just another web blog! Margaret Hurst’s World of Blog, studio 1482.
