Paterson, New Jersey, USA [RESULTS]

Postby mhimeswc » Mon Oct 18, 2010 2:08 pm

A chilly, windy day in New Jersey. After some discussion about where we should do this crawl, my sister Joan and I decided on a small section of the city of Paterson that had a couple of famous landmarks within a short distance of each other. The first was Lambert Castle, situated on a hill overlooking the city.

While I was finishing up, Joan started a sketch of the fountain behind us. I only had time to do a very quick lay-in sketch before it was time to move on.
Image
Down the road from the castle was the Great Falls of Paterson, a beautiful waterfall right in the middle of a big city.
Image
On our way home we stopped at a local farm stand to sketch some of their produce and Halloween decorations.

Even though it was cold enough to be bundled up in our winter outerwear, it was a great sketchcrawl.

Great work - I love both lots of paintings and drawings. Great also that you were out working in cold weather. I still love the idea of us all out in the same 24 hours all over the world drawing together. I had company this time but couldn't persuade my fellow sketcher to post her work - perhaps next time.

Perfect sketches and beautiful colors, particularly on "The Great Falls of Patterson".
I like the atmosphere. Thank you for sharing your drawings.
