This is the view from my sketchbooks and paintings done en plein aire. They are a selection from the past 3 years as I wandered the roadsides looking for subjects.

Triboro Bridge Jeff Levine sketchbook

This is a view of the Triboro Bridge (now renamed the RFK Bridge) from Randall’s Island on the East River.  I biked out there to exercise both my body and my right brain.  In the middle of the sketch a homeless guy sat on the next bench so I added him.

This watercolor of a rusting tugboat in drydock was done on an overcast summer afternoon in Belfast, Maine.

dr jeff levine md artist Savannah, Georgia Sketch

Wandering on a hot day in Savannah, Georgia I came across this old police car that begged for a sketch.

Jeffrey Levine artist downtown Manhattan

Setting up my paints and easel on a streetcorner on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, a place that echoes history, where you can still see some genuine old New York amidst the gentrification.

Grand_Central_01

Sketching with the NY Urban Sketchers in Grand Central Station, trying to capture the hustle and bustle of commuters.  

dr j levine md watercolor artist railroad train Maine 2015

On a lonely railroad siding in Rockland, Maine I sketched this old diesel engine.  My wife enjoyed clam chowder in a local eatery as I painted.  

JM Levine MD artist watercolor montauk lighthouse

Painting the lightouse in Montauk, the far eastern part of the South Fork of Long Island.  A spectacular view.  

Jeffrey M Levine MD artist painter Chinatown

One of my favorite sketching venues – the restaurants of Chinatown in New York City.  You need to sketch quick when the place is busy or they will chase you out.
