Joan's 2017 Sketches

Happy New Year!!! Another year...another sketchbook thread. I am off to a slow start for plein air sketching. The weather has been rainy and uncooperative, but I did get to sketch between the rain yesterday.

This was sketched with a twig and ink. I haven't used that method in quite a while and was happy that the ink I had in my backpack was still damp enough.

Today was portrait day for one of my art groups. Deano posed for us. I did a painting and then a quick sketch.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

Thanks Doug, Greg, and EP. I'm doing a "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge so I haven't been doing too much sketching. Added to that we are up in Maine visiting family so I'm spending more time socializing than normally. I did do a few sketches.

These were all done on the Cross Sound Ferry leaving Long Island and heading up here to Maine. I started with breakfast and then sketched some of the passengers.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

The watercolor (I think?) portrait looks especially amazing, great job! I like the tree too, it looks proper winter bleak.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

Thanks, Otherworlder.

It is always fun to be at someone else's house and find things to sketch. The ink sketch is of my sister's living room with the Christmas tree and door leading out to her porch. She also has a spinning wheel...this time I tried a digital sketch using ArtRage.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

A trip to Maine isn't a trip to Maine without lobster for dinner one night...and he was very cooperative.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

I did another sketch of the view out the window using ArtRage. It was cold up tin Maine on Saturday and Sunday, never getting warmer than 14 degrees. We were inside most of the time so I sketched the view from her dining room.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

I sketched this group in the tiny sketchbook I took with me. First I sketched the view in the restaurant where we stopped for lunch going home, and then on the ferry back to Long Island.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

EP, I'm glad you enjoyed the tasty lobster.

On Tuesday I did a portrait in the morning and a portrait in the evening...lucky me! Then my art group met on Wed indoors and we set up a few still lifes. I brought the objects for this one and made sure it was colorful.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

Today I took a ride to the Fire Island Lighthouse. I decided to do a walk and stop and sketch a few times. Each sketch was done a different way...one with ink and a twig, one with just watercolor pencils, another with a preppy ink pen, and one with Le Pen in brown, which turns a deep pink when it is wet. It was cold out but I was dressed in layers and had my fingerless gloves to keep my hands somewhat warm.

Re: Joan's 2017 Sketches

When I got back to my car I sat inside and did a sketch of the dunes directly in watercolors.
