This was one of my first New York City sketches. My roommate and I were meeting a friend at the movies, and when the friend texted us in transit to say she overslept and couldn't make it, we decided to go to the showing an hour later instead. While waiting for our friend we sat in Union Square, enjoying the gorgeous weather, reading (her) and sketching (me). Before we left to go to the movie, a woman came over to me to ask to see what I was working on. She had been waiting for her husband and watching me sketch from a distance and was wondering how it looked!
