Vintage Trains NY

You would not believe what just happend to me yesterday. So I was going home to Brooklyn by the F train. I got on the plat form waiting for the F train and the next thing I knew a very old train was pulling up to the plat form. I was like what the heck is going on. It turns out that this year the MTA in New York is having some fun by using vintage trains this year. It was so cool being on a vintage train, like going back in time. The seats were very low and they had this weave pattern on them. The the poles were white and long and felt like plastic. They even had old adds on the train over your head. On the out side it was amazing. I couldn’t believe that I actually road a vintage train. The train on the out side was a dark green color with little circle bumps where the hinges are.

If you want to catch a vintage train this year you better hurry because the next and last time they are running them is this Saterday on the F and M tracks in Manhatten. For more information click here – http://www.mta.info/metrocard/promos/Vintagetrain/index.html

Brooklyn Heights Promenade

So today I really felt like painting because it was an absolute beautiful day outside, so my mom said to me “Well if you want to go paint really good land escape I think you should go to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.” and I was like ” What is that and where is it?”. She said that it was just at the edge of Brooklyn and it looks out over lower Manhattan”. Then I was like “Sweeeeeeet”. When I got there I was speechless, it was so beautiful especially with the sun looking over it. I set up my materials and began to paint. When you paint of draw something in New York everyone always loves to look over your shoulder and say “That is so amazing”. That is also one thing I love about doing my art work in public, you get a cowed of people. Even though it might seem distracting and you have to make shore that every line is perfect. You really start to take your time and really get in the good detail.

The first picture is what I was painting to day.

The other pictures are the steps I took to painting the land escape and I’m still not even close to being done
