Day 825 Saturday. No it’s 

Sunday. I don’t seem to quit running. Emily acrylic 24×30 painted in about an hour and a half. 

Think her forehead is a tad too narrow which is an easy fix. Where I painted it was the black hole of Calcutta. No light because of Matthew pouring outside.

Drew Murphy. Amazing he painted this in about a half an hour. It’s 24×30. Acrylic. 
Drews first painting. He didn’t like t so he started over.  

Ruth Pearls beautiful conte crayon sketch. 

Al Beyers huge oil. About 3’x4′. Amazing to paint this in an hour and a half. 

Ruth’s second sketch. 
Done by Coach.  I need to learn his name. Large charcoal. 

FRed Bakers 24×30 acrylic. Another of his mad women. 

Tom Needhams lovely watercolor. Quarter sheet. 
And our newbee who amazes me. A little off but what talent in someone sketching for only a year. 

Mine in progress. 

Second break. Maybe I should have stopped here?
After forty minutes. 

True Margaret off to Asheville be back tonite. Xoxox napping now.  Lol. 

Day 830 It’s Saturday

Decided to draw today instead of paint. Partially because I only had a rectangular canvas and the pose was a reclining one. All six of these were drawn in about an hour and a half. 

My first sketch. Kuretake brush pen with carbon platinum black ink. 

I never finished this one. No shadow on her face. Paper is Stonehenge print paper which does great with ink and markers. 


Most of them were done with a Kuretake brush pen loaded with carbon platinum plus ink and colored with Tombow markers. The red one is done with red watercolor pencil. 10×14 Canson Pastel Paper

All Tombows on canson pastel paper. 10×14

Just the brush pen on canson pastel paper.10×14 Took about 20 minutes. 

Kuretake brush pen again on canson pastel paper. 10×14 This took about ten minutes. 
And the rest of them……


Cathe Dennis acrylic 24×30 love this. So ephemeral but still solid. And sketchy yet not. The fabric is so rich. 


All Beyer’s huge oil. 3×4? 


Our model the lovely Ilania checking out Als work to give you an idea of how big it is. 


Coachs incipient charcoal. He does a great job. He zipped out the door before I could take a pic of the final product. 


Thomas Needham’s beautiful small watercolor. 


Sketching for only a year, Rachel Millers 10×14 watercolor. To think this is one of her very first watercolors. The woman is so talented. She continues to amaze me. 


Marilyn Hartleys awesome charcoal and I think conte crayon. She said it wasn’t very artistic. I was thought what???


Here it is earlier. Such a great sketch. 


Mary Donnans pastel. Love the colors. 


Fred’s odalisque Acrylic 24×36. 

The rest got away before I had a chance to snap a pic. 
Have a great day.
