Another day chasing the light and fixating on this old shed. Didn't realize the light was changing. Good thing I took some photo's. I will try to finish this tomorrow. Kinda loosing interest, but I have to say it was still great fun. Listening to Tony Orlando, my daughters dvd. I've been baby sitting her two boxers. So my dog Mac, Mabel and Mistro enjoyed the sunny day.

Happy sunny Saturday. It's about time. I was outside painting plein air, this old shed my husband built. I wanted to paint the day lily's, so I really needed the shed in the painting. Wow, buildings are very difficult, correction it's all difficult. But I love it all. Have a great weekend.
Oh, I will do just a little more on this shed, I'm sure the perspective if off. I'll worry about it tomorrow.

Buildings, people and scenic thumbnails in watercolor. It's another rainy day on Long Island. While waiting for the sun, I did these quick sketches. I would like to do the historic buildings in Patchogue. Reese's Pub, and this old church. The little sketch of the shack and the people is Ralph's Italian Ice, which my family and I enjoy the delicious flavor ice's.

Black and white studies in watercolor of Aboretum in Oakdale. Once again inspired by Maggie Latham. Need to also take better photo's.
Mario, also had a suggestion, doing my black and whites, coal, or ink. Will do.
Mario is a very talented artist in Italy.
