Last Thursday I went to Coney Island with the NYC Urban Sketchers group. I had never been and had a hard time choosing subjects! I started with the Wonder Wheel, and the street leading down to it. It was lined with hangings depicting Freak Show acts, and it was a challenge getting the lighting on them just right!
After lunch I sketched the Thunderbolt. I had to back up onto the beach to get the view I wanted.
When I was done with the Thunderbolt, I took advantage of having already taken off my shoes and walked down to do a quick fifteen-minute sketch of the water. Waves are so challenging!
