Colors used. WN WC markers- indigo turquoise cad red sap green and Thalo green. A buff colored tombow.

Day 802 A Pound a Day!

Since I got home from the wedding. BUT Let’s not discuss what I ate are the wedding. I did have a date with a large bowl of homemade kettle chips!! 😁

Needless to say I have eaten ALOT Of chic Fil a Market Salads and even a southwestern one but always with a wave of avocado dressing on it. Maybe a tablespoon or so. And lots of Baby Bella cheese. Handy and highly portable. 
The background was colored with an indigo winsor Newton marker first pass. I thought it was a fairly boring color so I went back over it with the turquoise marker. Like it better now. You can also see the turquoise in the blue bowl on the left. 

Colors used
. WN WC markers- indigo turquoise cad red sap green and Thalo green. A buff colored tombow. 

Unfurling. Coming soon to Myrtle Beach!!

Day 798 It’s done. 

The party’s over. Time to get back on the diet. I wasn’t  terrible at the wedding other than the cake and champagne I mean prosescco. But those kettle chips at the rehearsal party where calling my name. I walked four miles no problem everyday just helping with the wedding and the grandkids. 

Ps tombow and winsor Newton watercolor markers. 

The party went on into the wee hours. I am off home shortly to pick up the dogs and then sleep for a week or two. 

Ttyl Margaret in hot Alanna. Xxx

Day 801 

Getting done. Not looking forward to lettering on the food cart. Made the guy on the left taller. I realized he was too short today. About an inch!!  

Monday. Dreaded green is gone. 

Last Wednesday. What was I thinking with that green on the center. 

Day one. Well actually day two. I totally screwed up the perspective and had to gesso it out and redraw it.

Day 800 UnbeLievABLe!!

800 days of posting daily. I meant to do a drawing not a giveaway BUT with the wedding life got away from me. 

On day 20 of the diet so postings slightly behind. 

Trying a little something different. When I was in Atlanta I went to Binders and got a few new Winsor Newton watercolor markers which I have been trying to use more. Though I love the tombows they are highly fugitive. Aka colors banish even in the dark. Not so with watercolors. Well not most of the colors. 

Anyway I used my new Quin magenta marker on the background of this page coloring the letters and the rings around the date then hitting  them with a water filled acrylic wc brush and let them run. After they dried I added. But more color to the lettering to brighten them. 

A lot of fun As soon as I remember to get the caran d’ache neocolor II out of the car I will start adding them for more color fun. 

Anyway down two pounds. 


Margaret glad to be home. Xxxx gym tomorrow. 😳

Day 799 Worn Out

A lot of progress made today. Details are starting to be added. The light green down the middle is gone. 

Here it was on last Wednesday with the darks added. 

And after the first plotting of the perspective and colors blocked in. 

Two more photos by Jill Doty photography. Check her out. She’s on fb and Instagram. Does a great job. Can’t wait to see all the photos. 

Thanks for checking by. Back on my diet and back to my nap. Worn completely out from five days of wedding parties and chasing my toddlers.   

Day 795 – the BIG DAY

Wedding bells ring this afternoon at Cater Woods Gardens in Atlanta.  In the meantime I walk by the shop windows and am obsessed by reflections. 

I popped these photos into Waterlogue which turns tw into watercolors. I think some of them will make great paintings either acrylic or watercolor. 

So why am I obsessed with reflections?? 

The things you see that were there all along reflected in back of you. 

Buildings, sky, even people walking down the street. 

Sometimes it’s just me. 

It’s like a hidden picture that is often more interesting thane hat you were looking at thru the window. 

Here are some of the originals taken in Decatur

And downtown Augusta Ga. 

This one is two windows one reflecting one looking thru to the street behind. 
Anyway wedding time. 


Thanks for checking by.
