Weather permitting, we will be sketching at Gillette Park in Sayville. You can get to Gillette Park by turning onto Gillette Ave from Main Street in Sayville and heading toward the water. Right now there are crocuses blooming and there is a neat labyrinth and gazebo. Dress warm.

Some interesting links

I was catching up on some on line reading and found some neat stuff:

This link has an idea for a SUPER portable sketch kit when you are on the run. What a great idea!

This link is the beginning of a series in the NY Times
on sketching and drawing:

Here's another neat sketching blog:

Here's a good link for why sketching (and drawing) skills are so important:

This Wednesday - March 23rd 7PM

This Wednesday has a potential for inclement weather and it is also the SBAA monthly meeting with a demo that might interest some of you. I am going to recommend attending the demo and we can sketch there as well as watch a demo about painting with acrylics.

Here's the official info:
The South Bay Art Association will host guest speaker, Mary Samuels, a local artist who will be demonstrating her impressionistic approach to a floral still life. Mary will be using acrylic paint and a live floral arrangement. The guest speaker will follow the regular meeting of the SBAA which takes place at 7:15PM at the Bellport Community Center on Bell Street in Bellport Village. The meetings are free and open to the public. New members are welcome

This Wednesday - March 16th 6PM

Weather permitting, we will sketch down on the Bellport waterfront. If you go to the end of the Bellport Lane, there is a dock where you can park and sketch.

The forecast is calling for rain, it is by the water and March is usually cold and windy by the water. Rain or shine, it's going to be cold. Dress appropriately or prepare to sketch from your car. I have done sketches from the dock from my car and you can get pretty good subjects there.

This Wednesday - March 9th

We are going to meet at Sayville's Starbuck's this week at 7. It's still chilly and the light isn't quite where it's sketchable.
