Recent Drawings

These are the sketches I did yesterday and today. This afternoon, I went to the Ateaz Coffee Shop on Metropolitan Ave. with our Fair Weather Artists group to sketch the pedestrians.

En Plein Air: Road Construction (Oil, 9 x 12)

It warmed up in the afternoon. Therefore, I pushed my painting kit down Glenfell St, not having decided what I was going to paint. As I was approaching the intersection of Glenfell and 80th Rd., I heard some noise and sniffed a smell of burned asphalt. In a moment, I saw some construction workers were resurfacing the bridge over the LIRR tracks on 80th Rd. Recently, I happened to have a craving for painting figures in the environment, so I simply went to the construction site and set up on the sidewalk nearby to paint.

En Plein Air: The Heavy Traffic on Metropolitan Ave. (Oil, 9 x 12)

I stationed myself on the corner of Metropolitan Ave. and Park Lane this morning. It happened to be the rush hours.
