Wycoff, New Jersey, USA (Results)

Post by Joan T » Sun Jan 23, 2011 2:53 am

Today's sketchcrawl took us to the James McFaul Environmental Center in Wycoff, NJ. We started off sketching from my car considering it was about 20 degrees outside and snow was covering most of the state. When the environmental center building opened we went inside and painted the views from their large windows overlooking the frozen lake. Of course there were the obligatory Canadian geese that wanted to get into at least one sketch. Here are mine.

It's cold and snowy, so it must be time for a January Sketchcrawl. Here are my sketches from the Environmental Center:

The light and shadows of the full sun on the snow are pretty awesome.

Thanks everyone!!! Since we've had snow on the ground since just after Christmas here, it seemed fitting to sketch it for the sketchcrawl too. Luckily we had a warm spot to sketch from.

I'm so impressed by the beautiful pictures from your group, and how you worked outside, too! Great pictures of the snow.
