Subway Sketch!

I’ve gotten into the habit of carrying my sketch tools in the NYC Subway, where there is no more interesting place to see the ebb and flow of humanity.  You need to sketch quick as people are constantly moving around and blocking your view.  Join me as I do a sketch in the Subway using pencil, fountain pen, and watercolor.

For those technique and equipment devotees out there, the pencil is a GraphGear 500 with 2B 0.9 lead, the pen is a Pilot Falcon with bulletproof Carbon Ink, and the watercolor set is a vintage Winsor Newton enameled palette with half pans.
