En Plein Air: Municipal Hall in Downtown Manhattan (Oil, 12 x 9)

This afternoon, I went to see my friend Karl in downtown Manhattan. Karl lives on 27th floor of a high-rise building by the Brooklyn Bridge. As I had told him before, I wanted to paint Manhattan from his balcony. It took around an hour and a half between 4 and 6 PM. Mainly I was inspired by British artist Andrew Gifford. Anyway, it was a good experiment.

On my way there, I drew some sketches on subway as usual. Unfortunately, after three sketches, my pen was out of ink, so there was no more drawing for the rest of ride or on my way home.
