OK, for all you Urban Sketchers out there that like structures.....we are going to sketch on West Main Street in Patchogue, near Queen City Cupcakes, Quench and Brick House Brewery. Watching the weather, it looks like Wednesday may be nice, but windy, so there are quite a few places on that block where we can sketch and not have to chase our art supplies. The Antique Store on the corner of West Main and Railroad Ave had some really great stuff in their window worth sketching....there's Bobbique or Brick House Brewery if you want to sketch and eat and Queen City Cupcakes if you want coffee and a snack while you sketch. Try to place your chair out of the way of pedestrians, that's a busy area.
Also, I have a formal request in for Wertheim, I am waiting to hear back from them. I have that tentatively scheduled for the 26th.

OK, for those that don't mind it a little "spooky...." and non-nautical.
We are going to sketch the Lakeview Cemetery located on Main Street in Patchogue between Waverly Avenue and right next to Briarcliff College....you can park on Main Street or you can park in Briarcliff's/YMCA parking lot and walk around.....though I think there is a way in on the YMCA side.
This cemetery has a lot of old monuments and some pretty awesome trees. It's a very peaceful place to sketch....and the residents don't mind the company.
You will need to bring a chair and possibly insect repellent, though I am hoping that the bugs are hanging more toward the water.

We are going to sketch over at Post Morrow Homestead on Bay Ave in the Brookhaven Hamlet...You take Montauk Highway east from Bellport to Brookhaven.....turn right (if you are coming from the east, make a left) on Beaver Dam Road heading toward the water and make a right on Bay Ave...Post Morrow will be on the right...there's signs on the property....
This link also has a map...
It's not a bad place to sketch or do studies. There's water, landscape opportunities. We've been here before.....I hope it is WARM and bring bug spray just in case the skeeters woke up already.

We are going to sketch at the Watch Hill Ranger Station at the intersection of Laurel St and Argyle Ln on the Patchogue River...not a bad spot actually. We'll meet around 6PM....
If it is raining, you can sketch from your car or cancel out for this week.
