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.
