Today was quick draw day. I checked the artists in and stamped their canvases/paper in front of the Patchogue Theater. It was a good morning for painting! The artists were given a timed painting session from 9 am and had to be back by 12 pm to be judged.
Because I was doing administrative work, I decided to paint in front of the theater with a cleaner medium, casein. So my view across the street was Kilwin’s, a much welcome addition to Patchogue. And easy on the eyes, if you like ice cream and chocolate…
Once everyone checked in, I set to work sketching out my underpainting, then proceeded to lay in the paint. Cars kept switching spots so I waited for a car that would be there a while.
Finally, one lady parked in front and put money in meter. Ha! Jackpot! I asked her if she was going to be there long, and, seeing me with an easel, her cranky pants response was “At least 2 hours!”
“Perfect!” I said, “I’ll paint your car!” So I added her car to the painting.
I finished the painting at 11:58, lol.
I used a plastic palette today for the casein, freaking awesome idea, wish Inhad thought of it sooner….here are photos of the painting and the tubes of casein..thank you Richeson company! Love casein!
