New York Harbor

Here is today’s 5″x7″ plein aire colored pencil landscape. The subject is New York Harbor as seen from Battery Park – the tip of Manhattan. The light was brilliant – late afternoon sun, but it was cold and windy and I drew quickly.

Then, I went to a coffee shop and make this, playing off the negative spaces made by grasses which you can see in the foreground of the landscape.
