Sketches from this week

Starting with today. After getting the call I was wishing for , my daughter and the family will be visiting us on the weekend. Now I have Christmas spirit. Mike and I went to Sayville so that I could sketch some of the shops and then we proceeded to the water and a little more sketching.

The tops sketch is of the Main St. Italian Bistro in Patchogue.

The second is a composite of some of the places I went to with PALS, our plein air group. The coffee pot was last Sunday morning. I just want to start my day with a little fun sketch. The last is Sayville, behind main st. These are all great fun to do, without the stress of getting into anything to complicated. So hence, sketching it is for awhile. Happy painting everyone, or sketching. Enjoy.

  1. Hi there Joan!... Once again your loosely turned out sketches reflect the total joy and enjoyment that you have brought into your life through your art!

    Painting and sketching really do contribute to a healthy outlook... and your work certainly validates that observation!

    Good Painting!... and enjoy those kids Joan!

    Warmest regards and Christmas Greetings!

  5. Hi Joan.
    All lovely sketches my friend. I particularly like the sepia sketch. This is brilliant. But again, I like them all. And again I say, I must have a go. Haven`t painted for awhile now Joan, but will start tomorrow. Joan, have a look at this website. flash-fiction-world.com It is my Sons writing site. I`m very proud of him. Read the bit about him. All the best my friend and again keep those lovely live sketches coming.
    Vic.

  8. These are brilliant sketches Joan and I especially like the first one. As you know, I've been trying to do a lot of sketching to loosen myself up a bit, but I'm not in your league ... these are great. Happy sketching!!!
