Merry Christmas from Rockefeller Center!
Early in December, New York City Urban Sketchers visited Rockefeller Center. Naturally, I had to paint the tree!
After painting the tree from the side (having not seen any other sketchers in the crowd), I found some sketchers with a great spot, front and center. One of my fellow artists had sweet-talked a guard into letting us sketch from inside a gated area they were otherwise mostly not letting people into (thanks, Suzala!). We were also joined for a bit by Cindy McEnery, a tourist on a short visit to NYC who was very excited to have a "non-traditional" subject to photograph in Rockefeller Center! Here's a few of the photos she took of us!
Here's the sketch I was working on while being photographed!
