Little Vincent's

This was sketched from my car across the street from Little Vincent's in Ronkonkoma. It is a quaint pizza place which according to the signs they have has been voted by readers of the LI Press as the best pizza in Suffolk. I don't know if that is true since I have only had their pizza once. It is too far a drive from my home to get pizza there on a regular basis, but it was a fun place to sketch.


I am presently in route to Myrtle Beach for a watercolor workshop with Ted Nuttal. Here is a link to his website if you want to see his work. http://www.tednuttall.com We have stopped for the night in Emporia, VA and have about 4 1/2 hrs more to drive tomorrow. This is the yearly watercolor trip I do with my sister, Mickey. The class is on painting figures from photographs, so we both had been scrounging around for photos of people. Luckily I take a lot of photos of people...even strangers. Mickey has to rely mostly on family photos even though he said that the first painting should be of someone you don't know. I guess if you work on someone you know you spend too much time trying to get a good likeness. Hopefully I will be able to post photos of the work I do. We meet the instructor tomorrow evening and then the class starts on Monday morning. I'm ready for sunrise walks on the beach every day!!! Yay!
