The Patchogue Sketch Club's theme on Wednesday was flowers. One of the members has a great garden and brought in an assortment of cuttings of flowers that were growing in her yard. She had several cuttings of her lilacs. Not only were they beautiful to paint but the fragrance was wonderful.

Arboretum Path

 I was at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale last week. The array of colorful trees and bushes was just amazing. Everything was so vivid. I am enjoying the colors of spring so much! Hope you are too.

Translucent Fabric

 This week Lefty Lucy posed in a sheer, translucent robe. It was fun to try to depict the fabric as it covered both her skin and her lingerie. Here are her longer poses.

This was the 20 minute pose.

Fortune Cookies

Riding around in West Sayville I came across a Chinese restaurant that looked like it would be fun to sketch. It might have good food too. I saw a number of people go in and pick up food.

Three of a Kind

On I am still participating in the Scavenger Hunts. In the current hunt hosted by Robin Susan we have to sketch 3 things that belong to the same group or category. Here are three vegetables (onion, Brussel sprout, and carrot) done directly in watercolors.

I'm not sure which hunt this sketch was for but I sketched 3 art tools.

Pinks on the Corner

 For some reason it feels like I'm coming across more cherry blossom trees this year than I can remember in the past. Right now they are finally losing their pink blossoms and turning green. It hasn't helped that our rainy weather and gusty winds for a few days seem to have speeded up that process too. This one was painted in Stony Brook before the wet weather arrived.
