Paint the Great South Bay Quick Draw 

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!
