Window Shopping at Saks

Window Shopping at Saks
Pastel Pencils, 7 by 9 inches
                                                                                                                                                        Window Shopping at Saks is my September submission for the Virtual Paintout blog.  Each month Bill Guffey selects a city for a virtual paintout using Google Street Map.  This month's selection was Manhattan and there was a good response to his challenge.  The rule is the subject for painting has to be found using Google Street Map.


After traveling virtually all over Manhattan, I chose a window display at Sak Fifth Avenue, I loved the composition of the three manniquinns.  The drawing measures 7 by 9 inches, using pastel pencils it was drawn on steel gray Mi-Tientes paper.

Can't wait to see what location Bill selects for October's Virtual Paintout!

Wow...another beauty! Very cool project! Wish I had an ounce of your talent!

We used to live in NYC and walking past Saks was so classic New York!

Thanks for bringing that back!
