Setauket Mill

On Sunday I took a ride up to Frank Melville Park in Setauket. I love the mill there, but it isn't easy to sketch the wheel part of it without standing up. I sat to do the sketch but had to keep straining my neck to see over the fence that was smack in front of me. I used a little salt to get the texture on the bricks.


  1. Oh, how we suffer for art. It was well worth it. Beautiful. I like the texture!

  2. Wonderful piece Joan - those waterwheels are a real B to draw - great job!!!

    1. Val, it surely wasn't easy to sketch the waterwheel. Thanks.
