Folks, this week we will be sketching inside the PAC Gallery on Terry St in Patchogue. I figured since the weather looks iffy, damp and chilly, it would be better do do something indoors.
SOOOOOO.....how about we set up a still life and sketch that? I have a pinkish pumpkin, some gourds, a butternut squash and a spaghetti squash fresh from the farms out east. I am encouraging you to bring something to add to the still life.
Does anyone have a Halloween Skull out of storage yet that we can sketch, too? and an autumn colored tablecloth? Let's have some fun and celebrate the season!
the address is 20 Terry Street, Suite 116, in Patchogue (11772).....it's the huge building behind the Patchogue Library/Post Office.

This week, we are going to sketch at the end of Beaver Dam road in the Brookhaven Hamlet. There is a Marina there and some nice marshy landscapes, plein air folks, bring the easels.
Brookhaven is just past Bellport, take South Country Road to Beaver Dam and drive to the end where it dead ends into the marsh and Marina.

This Wednesday we are sketching at the New Village at Patchogue. They have a Village Green behind The Brick House Brewery and we are going to sketch in the Village Green. You might be able to park back there, otherwise there is off street parking at the Courthouse nearby where we were set up for Alive After Five. If you park on Main Street, you will need to feed a meter.

This week we are sketching in Bellport at the end of Bellport Lane by the water....there is non-resident parking on the right. The guards on duty may not let you park on the pier so if you just park on the right in the lot you should be ok. There is tons to sketch down there by the water. You can go on both sides. You should get in a good hour's worth of sketching before the sun sets, bring bug spray.
