Joan's Assorted Sketches

Since I am doing the fake journal for this month, I have a lot of sketches that I need to post somewhere so I'm starting this thread and will continue putting my sketches here instead of separate threads, unless it is a special journal with a theme.

A portrait from my group on Tuesdays.

A cow from the Suffolk County Farm.

A Bellport house.

A fountain

The water and dock.


A portrait of Laurie

A view of the Bellport Yacht Club.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

These are all wonderful. But, I really like the cow, especially her long lashes.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

Great sketches! I especially love the landscapes. The cow looks young, like she's really a calf - well painted. You made my favorite prey look cute! LOL - I seriously enjoy beef, it's a luxury but one I appreciate. So normally I look at cows as large quantities of walking steak and burgers. This one's too cuddly looking. Well, maybe she's a big-eyed milker, source of yummy cheese that can be treated more like a pet.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

Some with ink, some without. Doesn't matter, as always....your sketches are awesome! Don't make me pick a favorite. Oh, OK.."Water and Dock", love the brown mid-ground tall grass in that one. And the fore-ground growth in the "Bellport House".

What pen and ink did you use in these?

Thanks for these!

Joan, what a lovely group of paintings. . . and so varied. The cow is adorable, such a sweet look on that young face. Both of the portraits are wonderful, I love how you do white hair.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

Debby - Thanks. The cows are so flirty with their long lashes.

Robert - Thank you. Sadly these are raised at the county farm and then turned into meal at the county jail. In fact, some of the inmates take care of them.

Doug - Thanks so much. I vary what ink I use. Sometimes I use a Micron pen in sepia and sometimes I want it to wash into the painting so I use my Lamy pen with Noodler's brown.

Ricky - Thanks. I like to paint the cows, but last year they fenced in a pasture for them to graze in. They were still in for the winter when I painted this, but I'm sure they are too far out for me to see their faces now.

Sandra - Thanks.

EP - Thank you.

This is Maurice. It was my first time trying to paint darker skin tones.

All these places you go. Great paintings. I really like the wisteria.

More great paintings. You did a fantastic job on Maurice, I think this is your best portrait yet. Well done.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

Debby - Thanks. I love how the wisteria looks so I made sure I got to paint it.

Jacqui - Thank you.

At the beginning of this week, my friend, Ai, from Thailand was in the NY area, so we got together to sketch. I know her from WetCanvas and we met last year for the first time when she was in visiting relatives.

We met on Monday by the clock in Grand Central Terminal and then went downstairs and sketched a flower vendor.

Next we braved the elements and sat out in the cold to paint outside Grand Central. I painted the 42nd Street entrance to the terminal.

Here are both of us holding our sketches outside.


We were freezing by this time, so we headed indoors to sketch at the NY Public Library on 42nd St and 5th Avenue.

On Tuesday we met in NYC again. First we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We sketched in one of the sculpture gardens. I sketched in dry inktense pencil and added the water when I got home. The museum doesn't allow any wet art materials.


Our next stop was the Guggenheim Museum. When we finished looking at the artwork, we sat in the lobby to do a quick sketch of the ceiling and ramps.

Our last stop was in downtown Manhattan at the High Line Park. The park was built along an abandoned elevated train station and runs along the river. It was really pretty, but it was like sitting in a wind tunnel. We had to hold onto everything we had.

Here are both of us holding our sketches before we headed into Chelsea Market to warm up and have some coffee before we each went back home.

It was so much fun to sketch with Ai. She inspires me. She is brave enough to always sketch directly in ink or directly in watercolor and her paintings are wonderful. I enjoyed showing her parts of the city.

Re: Joan's Assorted Sketches

Joan, for your building studies, do you put ink outline first and then fill in with watercolor next? e.g. Highline Park and NY Public library.

And for your Grand Station one, did watercolor go down first and then you flesh it out with pen work next?
