25th World Wide Sketchcrawl








I'm interrupting my paintings of France to post my "sketches" for the 25th World Wide Sketchcrawl. My sister and I drove about 30 minutes north of her home to Sugar Loaf, NY which has some quaint little artsy stores. We never got into any of the stores because we were sidetracked by the eye-catching colorful train station and caboose as you entered the town. Of course these ended up being much more than just sketches by the time they were done. With the time spent traveling, looking for bathrooms (lol) and the daylight so much shorter at this time of year, we only had time for two outoor sketches. We stopped for coffee before heading back home, so I sketched what was on the table in front of us too. It is always fun to do the sketchcrawls, especially with my sister, Mickey along.

I'll post more of Provence tomorrow.

jJoan, I am always amazed at how fast and well you sketch with watercolor.

Jo - Thanks! These weren't quick. They each took about 1 1/2 hrs...otherwise I could have sketched more.

your sketchcrawls look like a fab way to pass the day, and how lovely to be able to enjoy the process with your sis. Yet again, lovely paintings, and the abandonned staion sounds such an inspirational subject...
