Today is Day 4 of Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. This gouache painting was done by the canal in Islip.

Yesterday was the NYC Urban Sketchers Portrait Party. The group was divided into 4 groups of 14-17 people per group. Each person in your group posed for 10 minutes while the other artists frantically scrambled to complete the sketch. My group had 14 people, so I did 13 portraits. Wow...it was exhausting! Here are the portrait sketches I did. #13 is missing because I was model #13.
Of course I started of the day with a sketch on the Long Island Railroad. This group of people was going into NYC for some sort of races being held at the Armory.
