Portrait Party 2017

It's that time of year again, when NYC Urban Sketchers take one winter Saturday to do a non-urban sketching event, our annual portrait party! You may remember I went last year for the first time, and I was thrilled to go again!

This year the event was at Donnell Library on 53rd, which was beautiful, welcoming, and actually fit our full group! We had about 20 last year and this year we had closer to 45! We had to break into three groups to fit into the time allotted. Within each group, each sketcher took a turn being the model, each sitting for ten minutes. Yes, these were all done in ten minutes and yes, ten minutes goes FAST! At the end we put all our sketches into a grid (so you have a row of your sketches and a column of the sketches the other sketchers did of you). Here are all of my sketches.

EDIT: Also, Joy (see my second sketch) was nice enough to let me include her sketch of me! Definitely spot on!
