30 Day Challenge - Day 23 - Foggy View to the Bay & Shoes

We had some warm temperatures the last few days and that combined with the cold ground gave us a bit of fog in the early part of the day when I was out scoping out a place to paint. I ended up down by the bay in Blue Point to do my Day 23 gouache painting for the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge.
Don't forget to check out some of the other work being done for the challenge here.

Last night the Patchogue Sketch Club met at the library. Our theme for the night was "Shoes." Everyone put their shoes that they brought on the long table that was set up. A timer was set for 15 minutes for you to sketch what was in front of you. When the timer rang you would move two seats to your right and sketch again, and then move again. etc. It was a fun way to get to sketch most of the shoes that were brought for the night. Everyone's favorite were the feathery pink shoes.


  1. Love the shoes Joan! However, you needed some heavy work boots for contrast - lol. Glad you are enjoying a bit warmer weather and the fog makes for an interesting painting.

  2. Thanks, Val. Do you have a pair of dressy work boots? lol

  3. Nice soft landscape. : )
    The shoes are fun. Interesting colors and shapes. How about dressy cowboy boots?

    1. Thanks, Jo. That would be fun but I don't think we would be able to come up with any here in NY. lol We'd have to come down and visit you.
