NYC Building at 21st and 6th Avenue – brush pen on paper in Sketchbook No. 65, 3 January 2013, about 8.5″x11″

Here’s a fairly quick sketch of a good looking New York City building that’s right around the corner from where my fiance Carrie works. The building is in Chelsea, at the corner of 21st Street and 6th Avenue. I kind of think of it as the Trader Joe’s building, because that’s the store on the ground floor.

I used brush pen. It was fairly cold out, so I worked pretty fast, and it shows – there’s a bunch of not-so-great lines in there… especially some of the shading… but overall it looks good enough to post here. Sometimes being in a bit of a hurry forces me to push through drawings that have a few errors.
