Day 613 Duck Duck Goose and

   

Drawn with my stick. I thought it needed shadows. Thinking it didn’t. What do you think? Drawn with platinum carbon black ink on canson mixed media paper. 
Geese without the shadow. What do you think? 

   A dog that loves to chase the geese in the neighborhood. My lab Honey begging yesterday. Like the ink drops. They were a happy accident. One fell and I added the rest. She started a little off but improved. Definitely the way she sits on the floor begging. 

Thanks for reading. 

Margaret who’s early today! 👍🏻❤️❤️❤️

Day 612 – Running late. 

   
WIP -Emily – 24 x 30″ acrylic she needs more work!! Monday!! 

Almost forgot to post.   Been on a house cleaning purge this week after reading a book called  The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up!Who  knew books could be clutter especially if you never read them again. The author suggests unless a book makes you happy you should pass it on. So I have been and yes it’s making me happy. 

So while piling up almost 100 books to Goodwill today I found a set that made my eyes bug out. Worth a tidy sum on Amazon resales. 

Last time I did that I sold a book that I paid $5 for at the Borders remainder piles for $275- filled with lovely horse sketches and a Jack Russell or two drawn by the guy who started the gnome craze – the little elves in the peaky red hats. 

  The block in at first break. Eek look at that nose!! And the chin!! 

This weeks nude. A new model. She did a lovely quiet pose. Eventually I got the face sorted. 

So what’s wrong with the painting. Not a lot. 

The background needs finishing especially the left. 

Her face needs some lightening and some highlights. And that forehead is TOO round. 

Right breast a little in how did Dave put it “a ski slope!” It’s not easy doing detail with a HUGE brush. 

If I had to start over I would make her larger and explode off the canvas a bit but as is she’s a nice quiet painting. 

You never know I just paint her over. Mondays are always  a fresh start. Isn’t that great!? 

Thanks for reading.
