Plein Air Oil Sketch and Drawing s of Eddie Sweet Shop
It was drizzling this morning. When the sky cleared up, my friends and I decided to go out to paint. We met at Kew Gardens Long Island Railroad Station. I did an oil sketch of the Odradeks Coffee House. At first I outlined two customers sitting outside. Unfortunately, before I could block in color, they took off. So I scraped the whole thing and started all over again. After I was done, we decided to go to an old ice cream stop on Metropolitan Road named Eddie's Sweet Shop to sketch. Can you believe the store was founded in 1911?
