This is a plein air I did this weekend at Meadowcroft Estate in Sayville. I liked the barn, but the little garden was such a treat! This is 7 x 10.

Both of these paintings were done for the WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Event hosted by Bonnie. I hadn't done a portrait in a few weeks so I went for that one immediately. I even did this one larger than I have been doing them. It is about 8 x 10.
"Pelican Air" was done on masa paper with watercolors and ink. I've been wanting to do something on masa paper for a while, so I was experimenting a bit. I have very conflicting instructions on how to paint on masa paper, so I'll have to try the other method too. This is 8 x 10.

Last evening the Patchogue Sketch Club met at Flo's in Rocky Point. It is an institution in the area and had quite a crowd of people last night. (I only included about 1/5 of the number of people that were standing in front. lol). This is 4 x 5.

I revisited the Peconic Herb Farm today and did two paintings. This is a small one for my "Sketchbook" project. I've painted this shed from the other side previously.
Next I sketched the view through the doors of one of the open greenhouses. I like the way the double page spread worked for this. The paper I used was pretoned with watercolor paints. Originally I was just going to sketch in ink over the color, but this took on a life of it's own.

This is another painting I did on the beach the other day at Cupsogue Beach. Striped umbrellas always remind me of the one my family had when we were kids. This is also in my book for the "Sketchbook Project."

Yesterday I ventured over to Cupsogue Beach on Dune Road in Westhampton. I love the view of the bay from the boardwalk there. This is one of the paintings in my "Sketchbook Project" journal that will be submitted when I finish all the sketches. This is 3 x 5.

The Patchogue Sketch Club met last night at the Bellport dock. Thunderstorms were forecast, and there was even a tornado watch for part of Long Island, but we painted anyway. lol
This is a home that was right on the bay there. It had a big fence in front of the rose bushes, but I replaced the fence with more of the bushes. I hope the homeowners don't mind. This is 5 x 7.
