Summer Plans for Sketch Events. Please offer your thoughts.

Please offer your thoughts for possible places for sketch events this summer.  I'd like to suggest the weekend of July 16 or 17.   Potential locations: Asbury Park/Ocean Grove, Newark River Park, Basking Ridge.  Please offer other places--historic towns, parks, gardens, architecture--that you'd be interested in visiting.

Please hold the weekend of August 13-14 for a sketch day in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Known for decades as an artists community, New Hope sits on the Delaware River just opposite Lambertville, New Jersey.  The sketch event will be part of the August Arts Festival sponsored by Artsbridge Arts Group (  New Hope offers views of the river and historic canal and towpath, shops, galleries and restaurants, New Hope and Ivyland Railroad.  We can finish the day at the centrally located Triumph Brewery.  More details to come.


  1. Doodlewash is promoting July as World Watercolor Month. So at the very least, we should all try to take up the challenge and join that celebration by attempting 31 Watercolor Paintings in 31 Days!

    1. Charlie, great idea! I've always wanted to do a 31 drawings/painting in 31 days challenge. Who else is interested?

    1. Helena, I don't know this place. Have you been there? Tell us more about Batsto.

    come to think of it, and provided it's not too far from most sketchers here, we can have a nice day of sketching - Batsto, lunch at FIesta in Hammonton on the way to Wheaton Glass for the afternoon sketching...

  4. what about Red Bank? and should we take this discussion to the email list?
