Tonight the Patchogue Sketch Club met at Meadowcroft Estate in Sayville at 6:30. With the sun setting earlier and earlier we have to work fast before it gets too dark.
First I painted in the garden. I liked the contrast of the stone birdbath and the flowers.
This is about 4 x 6 in my Stillman & Birn Alpha Sketchbook.
The other artists were still working so I went over by the vegetable garden and did a quick watercolor sketch just with paint. I really abused the paper in this one with a lot of water and paint...but the paper took it well...no pilling, no buckling.
