manhattan bridge

I took the Subway (and kept calling it the BART for some stupid reason) to Brooklyn, to DUMBO, and stood in the pissing rain between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Raining so heavy I couldn't really draw, but I took a lot of great photos. I started to leave na dthen said, you know, I'll kick myself for not doing at least one drawing here, plus my friend Simon drew London in harder rain back in May, so I sat down on my stool and the rain stopped, long enough for me to draw a really nice view of the Manhattan Bridge. I'm so glad I did, drawing on location and not from a photo made all the difference.
