Sometimes a sketching opportunity knocks you over the head. Yesterday I was driving through Sayville heading over to the arboretum to paint something. Out of the corner of my eye I caught this crowd on the main street. Now could I park and sketch this before the ceremony ended? I quickly found a parking spot, grabbed my chair and supplies and set up across the street. There were a few speeches and prayers said which kept the people still in one spot long enough to sketch some of them. I was able to add color to some of the people before the crowd started to break up. I continued working, adding the buildings in the back and a few more people. I am happy with this.
