Ear Bar

Yet another New York classic, established in 1817 and located at 326 Spring Street on the west side. This place is steeped in history and I'll go into more details later, I'm working on some interior sketches at the moment.

this one is great, I love the tree. what are your tools here ?

Stephen Gardner said...

I'm using Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens with a little bit of gouache paint to bring back some highlights.

I'm working on getting the ruling pen shot out for you.

Thanks for your interest and I'd be glad to answer any other questions you might have.

I really enjoy seeing your city sketch and bar drawings, espcially the color

did you use any kinds of marker?

Katherine said...

I like the balance of warm and cool colors here.

Great blog - I really enjoy looking at sketches!

Sheila said...

Answer any questions eh Stephen? I'm still looking for an answer for , "What is the meaning of life?" lol

Okay, I'm sure you're going to answer the regular questions like, "Is EAR the name of the original owner or was it the receptacle of town gossip?"

Is EAR an acronym for Everyone's Already Ripped?

We have to go visit that ear.

Ha-ha, Chad is only thinking "bar."
Hmmm, I'm assuming you get a lot of free drinks in NYC!

Stephen Gardner said...

O.R- thanks, I use Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens available at an art store near you.

Katherine- Thanks for stopping by, another day another drawing.

Sheila- There is a great story about how the bar became the EAR. I'll tell you in due course. As for the meaning of life, the answer is, of course 42.

Chad- I can't hear you!

ETPAS- Chad is always thinking bar and as for the free drinks, I can't complain.
