Long Island, NY (Results)

Postby Joan T » Sun Jan 22, 2012 6:30 pm

My friend, Susan and I had planned on joining the NYC group at the Winter Garden for this hunt, but Mother Nature had other ideas. We ended up with a snowstorm that left us with about 4 inches of snow before turning to sleet. It just wasn't safe to travel so I stayed home and did the sketchcrawl there.

I started with my comfy, warm bed that I just crawled out of. I did this one before even making coffee. lol

Then I headed into the kitchen to slice mushrooms for my omelett. I did have coffee made by this time.

I wanted to capture a few sketches of the snowstorm itself. I sat under an overhang on my patio to sketch while the sleet was coming down.

This one was sketched from my garage. I was inside with the garage door open.

Now I was a bit too cold to do any more outdoor sketches so I sketched my living room and the snowy view outside the windows.

I did one more sketch of my backpack and paints.

It wasn't the sketchcrawl I had planned on, but I had fun anyway!

Wow! Great sketches!!! I love the one of your bed, and the one from the garage with all the snow covered cars.

By the way, did you notice that I was able to comment on your blog? :D

You deserve some sort award for sketching before your morning coffee. I like how informative all your drawings are. You really give us a nice sense your home and the weather.

Glad that your poor backpack at least got some use as your model :crazy:

Mickey - Thanks. Funny that the updates made it work again.

Sunilo - Thank you. I knew I had to sketch it before the coffee or I wouldn't get out of the kitchen for a long while. Hope that Susan and I get to meet up with you and the group at some point.

I was only joking when I suggested you should sketch from the garage! You did a great job with your sketches. I hope we will have better luck going into the city for the next one! :wave:

Joan, sorry that the winter storm kept you in town and in home but your sketches are amazing esp. the bedroom and the mushroom. I think the mushroom will fit the Hunt too. Great job and Congratulations.

I enjoy getting to see a "slice of life" in the sketches here, and yours are perfect for showing a snowy day in New York from the inside. Nice work. :clap: Best wishes, Mary
