Joan's 2016 Sketches

Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe we are in a new year already. I tried really hard to post my December sketches in my previous thread. There are still some I didn't get to post so they will be put here.

Here are some of the other ornaments on my tree. The snowflake is a digital sketch done on my iPad.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

The last trip the NYC Urban Sketchers had in 2015 was to the Union Square Holiday Market. I did a sketch on my iPad while I was on the railroad going into the city. Then I sketched one of the colorful stalls at the market, the entrance to the market, and the Strand Bookstore. We lucked out doing the bookstore because we found a cafe right across the street and were able to sketch from inside.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

After sketching we always go somewhere to share our sketches. That day it was a very loud bar where there were numerous large screen TVs blaring the Steelers football game. We made the most of our time there. I sketched a guy at the next table and a table of Steeler's fans. My last sketch was done on the railroad going home with my iPad.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

It may seem a little strange to sketch in church, but at our church on Christmas Eve you have to get there really early or you don't get a seat. As it was we couldn't get into the upstairs Mass in the church, so I sketched the view before the downstairs Mass started. After Christmas I went out east and found a cute bakery to sketch. I did one regular sketch from my car and one digital sketch inside while I had coffee...no the cookies weren't from the bakery. I baked these.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

I finished 2015 with a sketch of a restaurant in Stony Brook (from the outside), a boat builder's building, and a sp of myself. Now that I'm all caught up, it should be less hectic posting again.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Thanks, Doug. I still try to sketch or paint something every day.

Debby, thanks so much. The iPad is fun but won't replace sketching on paper.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

The first sketch was my last plein air sketch for 2015. It was down at the local marina that does boat repairs. Often when I pass by they are repainting a boat or two. This one was done on my iPad.

On New Year's Day we had cold weather but I headed over to Robert Moses State Park. It has the best views of the Fire Island Lighthouse, even from the parking lot. I sat in my car to sketch the lighthouse on my iPad and then bundled up for a walk along the boardwalk to the lighthouse and back.

Today's sketch was done at the Smith Point Marina. The bridge crosses from the mainland to the beach area.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Thanks Vivien and Debby!

Yesterday I went to Jersey City with the NYC Urban Sketchers for a workshop. My friend and I went in early so we could sketch something in the area. It was too cold in the morning to work outside, but we found a market that served coffee and had seats with a view by the window. You could see the Manhattan skyline between the buildings.

After the workshop we all ventured out in the cold to sketch down by the water. We only lasted about 45 minutes but it was enough time to get some of the view sketched and colored. Luckily my watercolor paint didn't freeze on the paper. That's happened before. lol

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Today after errands I wanted to sketch some people. I went to a local McDonald's because you can always find people there and they usually stay put for a little while. I used my iPad today.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Lovely sketches Joan, you don't miss a chance.

A sign of the times when the MacDonalds sign gives the calories

Incidentally what type of white gel pen do you use, mine are not so opaque or free flowing?

Doug
