Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

With these two sketches I'll be all caught up. Yesterday I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the NYC Urban Sketchers. We sketched in the Arms & Armor rooms. I liked the samurai and the suit of armor. It doesn't look too comfortable. lol

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Thanks so much, Maria!

We had some cloudy days with great skies, so I did a few skyscapes.

Here are a few local sketches. I've been getting a lot of tree practice done.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

I've been wanting to sketch this barber shop and finally was able to park with a good view...and along came a guy with his dogs to add to the sketch. The second page is a few people sketched at the motor vehicle department while I was waiting.

Wonderful sketches Joan, I have been away on a hotel break but only managed a standing sketch of the hotel front.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Thanks, Doug. I hope you had a good time even if you didn't get much sketching done.

I enjoy sketching some views that are a bit gritty. This was behind the train tracks in Sayville. I crossed the tracks another day to see what the tall, narrow building was but it was too far back on the property to see it well enough.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Here are two flower sketches. The first was of my Valentine's Day roses after they dried out. They are still holding together. The second was done at my sister's house of her amaryllis that was in bloom.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

We had a bit of snow here on Long Island so I used my gray toned Strathmore sketchbook and gouache to capture it.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Lovely sketches Joan. I think that like me you are more comfortable with landscapes than people.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Lots to catch up on. I'm very fond of the minimal coastal scenes and the recent snow ones. I almost wish you would do more landscape sketches, but I fear I would miss the people in your work. Gah... such a dilemma!

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

I particularly love the sea landscapes - you should do more.

All is lovely, and I very much enjoy travelling with you.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Doug, thank you. I love doing landscapes as you can tell. Portraits are different and they are a challenge. lol It is fun to see if I can get a nice likeness.

Munin, thanks so much. The landscapes will always win out, but I never pass up an opportunity to do any subject. It helps that we are surrounded by water and boats here.

Maria, glad you like the seascapes. Like doing them.
