Here are few plein air paintings from the last week in New York. I was staying in Tribeca and painted a bit in the neighborhood.
It was pretty quiet downtown for the July 4th weekend, and the city had a wonderfully empty feel to it. I also went up to 5th Avenue on the morning of the 4th to paint the flags on Rockefeller Center.
And we painted a bit in Central Park.
New Yorkers have an undeserved reputation for being rude to tourists, but I find it one of my favorite places to paint. The locals always seem so appreciative and respectful of plein air painters.
