Sketchcrawl October 16, 2010












Saturday was the latest Worldwide Sketchcrawl (www.sketchcrawl.com), and after some discussion about where to crawl, my sister Joan and I decided on a couple of Paterson, NJ landmarks. The first one was Lambert Castle, which sits on the top of a hill overlooking the city of Paterson. After painting the castle, I did a very quick pencil lay-in sketch of the fountain that was behind us. No time to refine it, as we were on our way to the Great Falls of Paterson a short distance away. This beautiful waterfall is right in the middle of the city. On our way home we stopped at a local farm stand to sketch some of their produce. It was chilly and windy, but a good sketchcrawl.

Mickey - Thanks for thinking of the castle and falls for our day of sketching. It was a lot of fun, even though it was cold. I like your sketches, especially the one of the falls.

I just discovered your blog. Of your latest work, the waterfall is my favorite. I like the balance and the textures.
