Of course I was exhausted when we got home last Tuesday at 10:30 PM. I went straight to bed and slept until only 5 AM. I was really dragging all day but I didn't want to nap and then not be able to sleep at night. My Wednesday sketch group was meeting in Patchogue and I joined them, even though I was really tired. The group will be doing a show sometime this year and we were asked to get sketches ready to be juried into the show. So we are concentrating on Patchogue scenes. The group met on South Ocean Ave by the VFW Hall was where I sketched for the Memorial Day Ceremony yesterday. I didn't want to do that building. I was attracted to this building which is the Parish Center for St Francis De Sales Church. It is a complicated building so I was only able to do the ink sketch of it that night.
But I did go back over the weekend when the sun was out because I wanted to paint it with shadows on the building. Here it is as it stands now. I may tweek it a bit more.
