This sketch was made in a snap - less than half a minute. I was on the "2" train as it left Manhattan to enter Brooklyn. I was already doing a couple of sketches inside the train when bright sunlight flooded the train as it emerged from the tunnel. I looked out of the window and was struck by the sight of skyscrapers and bridges against the jetblue sky and water. I sat gazing at the beautiful landscape when I realized that I had just a few seconds (before the train got into the tunnel in the next borough) to put down the details on paper and made this hurried drawing.
I will be posting the other sketches made in NY over the next few weeks.
