Inktober - Day 19 & Central Park I

Yesterday my plein air group was painting at a farm stand out in Wading River. My painting isn't quite finished so I will post that in the future. When I packed up for the day I grabbed by sketchbook to do my Inktober 19 sketch. One of my artist friends was still working at her easel so I sketched her.

On Sunday 2 friends and I went into the city to Central Park to sketch. We started out at the Conservatory Garden, a formal garden up along 5th Ave and 105 St. It had a lot of pretty views.


  1. Spectacular colors in Central Park! Absolutely beautiful Joan!!

  2. What a treat to see and paint all the color in the garden! Looks almost like late summer!


  3. You caught the gesture of the artist at work beautifully in your sketch! I love the beautiful colors and textures in the garden painting, really gorgeous!!

  4. Thanks, Hilda. There are a lot of locations to paint in the park.

    Tina, we were hoping all the mums would be in bloom but we were about a week too early. Thanks.

    Celia, thanks so much! Glad you like it.

  5. Great sketching. We will be waiting for the mums!

  6. the Central Park piece is particularly lovely Joan. I also admire your line sketch which is something I have trouble with - probably because I don't do it often enough. It always amazes me how you can find the time to go out almost every day to paint or sketch; you must be a super-woman, lol
