Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Friends and I went to the greenhouse at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay...a perfect place on a cold day.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Two different days and two different bodies of water here on Long Island. I was happy to do the first one because it was actually warm enough to sit outside and paint. The second one was done from my mobile studio.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

I joined two friends on a warm day last week to sketch some birds. Most of these were done directly in watercolor because the birds move so quickly. There isn't time to overthink what I'm doing. The last group was sketched with one of those "funny pencils" that have a variety of colors in the tip, giving you very little control over what color comes out.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

The portrait project is so awesome! I love the organization "all works left-to-right are from the same artist; all works top-to-bottom are of the same subject" Yaaay!!!

I used to have one of the funky pencils that had random colours come out (usually made of R, Y, B in varying orientations) but I haven't seen it in some time...

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

The other day I stopped to sketch something on my way to an appointment. This is a local deli and cars were pulling in and out while I sat in my car sketching.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

We had another frosty day so I was thankful for my mobile studio so I could paint this up at Short Beach in Smithtown.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

On Sunday I took a ride up to Port Jefferson which is on Long Island Sound. I like sketching down streets toward the water. Sometimes if you're lucky the Cross Sound Ferry will pull in to add to the scene. I wasn't so lucky on Sunday.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Thanks EP!

This is my second sketch done at Sandspit Marina. They are doing construction down there and I never know what I will find.

I like sitting in my car and capturing the view down the end of the street where it meets the bay. This was done the morning after we had a little snow. You can see where it was left by the snowplow that came through.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Our sketch group had jewelry as a theme last week. It was fun to sketch my grandmother's cameo as well as some other less treasured pieces.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Usually I work from life, but I had been to a chocolate shop last weekend and took a photo of some chocolate covered strawberries. I couldn't resist sketching one.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Here are two local sketches. The boats were at a marina called Silly Lily's and I think they keep them turned over to keep the rain and snow out of them. The country store is a great building that I've wanted to sketch for a while. Like the day I did sketch it, there are usually trucks blocking the view.
