The View From My Sketchbooks

This is the view from my sketchbooks and paintings done en plein aire.  They are a selection from the past 3 years as I wandered the roadsides looking for subjects.

Triboro Bridge Jeff Levine sketchbookThis is a view of the Triboro Bridge (now renamed the RFK Bridge) from Randall’s Island on the East River.  I biked out there to exercise both my body and my right brain.  In the middle of the sketch a homeless guy sat on the next bench so I added him.

Jeffrey M Levine MD artist painter ChinatownOne of my favorite sketching venues – the restaurants of Chinatown in New York City.  You need to sketch quick when the place is busy or they will chase you out.
