Statue of liberty

Statue of liberty, as seen from the Staten Island ferry. Still one of the cheapest New York attractions.
Unfortunately we did not have a ferry with an open deck this time (like we had 6 years ago), but we had to watch Manhattan, Ellis island and the Statue from behind windows.

I had about 7-9 minutes to draw and paint this, the ferry is already halfway it's 25 minute journey before you see the statue properly. Sometimes drawing so quickly works, because you have to skip details. But more often it's off mark.

Quick was a good thing with this sketch- very well done- and the protest sketches may end up in a history book some day!

Thanks Rob. I'd prefer a world where these protest were not necessary.
