Sketching Life


 Construction sketch  watercolor by Meera Rao 

There was much traveling in the past few days.  And unfortunately I also sprained my leg while walking around and had to spend some time looking out of my hotel window.  One morning I sketched the hard hat wearing construction workers across the road from my 9th floor room window.  

When in NYC I got a chance to visit my sketch book "A Day In The Life"  at the Brooklyn Art Library :)  I spent the morning there looking through many of the sketchbooks in the library -- what an inspiration! The library has beautiful, very creative and completely unique sketch books  from all over the world!

I didn't realize that you had a sketchbook there too! That's so awesome that you saw both our books! I wish I could have done that. Your construction drawing is great! I love all the action.

So sorry about your leg. I hope you are better now. I love that you got to see your sketchbook in the Brooklyn Art Library! I hope to go there sometime and see mine too.

I hope your leg is better, Meera. I love that you got to see your sketchbook in the Brooklyn Art Library! I hope to see mine there someday, but haven't made it to Brooklyn yet.

Katherine, I was happy to see your book! - as I wrote you earlier, the book is awesome in person !

Meera Rao said...

Thanks Padmaja! There were over 26,000 sketchbooks there - and I spent two hours going thru may be twenty ! But it was truly awe inspiring!

Yvonne, I wish I had known that you had a book there- I tried to look up all the artists I knew had a sketchbook - it was so exciting to see the works in person! Next time I am in NYC - I hope to go again and see more - yours too!

I love your sketches Meera. How wonderful to see your book at the library. I wish the sketchbooks were going to come to Kansas on their tour, but they are not. I hope your leg gets better!

Meera Rao said...

Thank you Lisa :) It was a lot of fun to go the sketchbooks - even though I could only look at a few in the time I was there!

That is cool Meera! Sorry to hear about your leg. Hope it heals soon.

Meera Rao said...

Heera, Thank you :) I am much better - only hitch is that it starts hurting after I have been p on my feet for a while :( I guess healing takes time!
