This was a big leap for me, as a newbie I certainly have not sketched in public and the mere thought terrorized me - but - DH was in NYC and I headed in Friday to spend the weekend. I knew this was it - time to get out and sketch with abandon. Knowing my idol Laura (laurelines) was in Chinatown sketching I fancied myself on a sketch crawl. I packed my new sketchbook and pens/pencils/WC and took off. This is my first sketch, but taken from postcards as I practice and dream and created a first page for the trip journal.
