NYC Urban Sketching at the Dyckman Farmhouse

Pen & ink, Watercolor October 21, 2017

Today I went into NYC to sketch with the NYC chapter of Urban Sketchers.  Today’s sketch outing was a joint venture with the Urban Sketchers of Indonesia to commemorate the Treaty of Breda, where the Dutch traded Manhattan to the English for a monopoly on nutmeg.  We are trading sketches with the Indonesians and this is the first time two Urban Sketcher chapters sketched jointly. We sketched at the Dyckman Farmhouse on Broadway in the Bronx.  Yes, there is a farmhouse in Manhattan.
