Day 886 – Another Guy

Don Henley of The Eagles. I think he needs more Wrinkles. But what gorgeous blue eyes. He is painted with watercolors. Ted Nuttalls transparent colors plus cerulean. The beard is painted with cerulean and turquoise. 

The background and letters are painted with gouache. Yellow,  pyrrole red, and white. 

The sketch. I did add a smudge to the left hairline on the forehead. It was too square. 

I like the contrast of the gouache with the transparent watercolors. I am thinking about adding a list of their songs to the background to fill up the empty spot between the head and the letters. 

And a big oops. They were talking about  band member Glenn Frey on CBS when I was drawing this. My poor brain decided to write his name instead of Dons. Oops. Great G though. So I had to use the gouache to paint it out. It was either that or some ledger pages. 

Key West  is looming. 

Off I go. Ttyl. 

Margaret on the road again. Xoxoxo

Day 883 A Little Color!! 

Not my best. May require more work. Gouache painting of one of our fav restaurants in Brevard Mayberrys. Awesome

Cheese cornbread and vegeterian chili. Tonite sunset out then back door. Truly spectacular. That’s the cold front roaring into Augusta forcing a bank of sin drenched clouds ahead of it. 

I looked outside a minute later (I swear just one minute) and it was gone. 

Zoe trying to get my attention.

Today’s morning sketch of Eagles Band member Don Henley. 

Oops. They were talking about his friend and fellow band member Glenn when I started writing DoNs name. Now I broke it and I have to fix it. Sigh. 

Let the painting begin. 

Margaret off the Key West tomorrow and would pack if she had any clothes that fit for 82 degree weather. Guess I will shop when I get there.
