Touring the L.I. Libraries

Today at Brightwaters Library

Brightwaters sketch, pen and ink

It's just too cold to go out and paint.  So the next best thing is to study people.  The libraries are great for this, because the people seem to stay still while they are deep in thought.

Out and About

Smithtown Library
watercolor sketch
Today was frigid, but had to get out of the house.  My first attempt was to do a water color sketch of the Smithtown Barn.  The road was still too icy and there wasn't a decent place to park.  I went out onto the road and took some photo's , they will have to do for now.  We then went over to the Smithtown library.  I sat at a very out of the way table on the upper level.  I did a sketch of the circulation desk and the ladies, which there was only two.  Which I just continued to do gesture sketches.  Hopefully I will begin to feel more comfortable doing these little sketches from life.  Happy painting everyone.
