Day 1173 Lazy Sundays

Beautiful sunny day here on the Savannah River. The weather is gorgeous. Am I out walking the dogs?!! Ah nope. Sitting on the sofa knitting watching dvred tv shows.

Zoe’s once again snoozing in her cozy bed in the sunshine while a squirrel chews on the pot on the other side of the window inches away from her.

Page was coated with a very light layer of quin gold. Painted with quin sienna, peacock blue, ultramarine blue and burnt umber.

So how did I draw her in her bed??? White dog white fleece. Lots of sun!? Squiggly lines for the fur. I have been interested in Tommy Kane use of crosshatchjng and lines since I watched a sketchbookskool club. video. Contour lines on her. Lots of straight lines and curves on the bed fabric a brocade. Tons of cross hatching in the shadows. And then even more crosshatching to darken it further.

My Lamy collection so far. All kinds of pens and nibs but still I use the Vista and Safari the most.

I started drawing with my old beloved Lamy Vista Ef and then changed to my Lamy Safari (the two Lamy’s on the right) both loaded with noodles eelskin. In my stillman and birn alpha.

Margaret xoxoxox who might paint.

    That sounds like a great day. Your dogs are adorable. My cat stayed by my side as I read and wrote yesterday. She is white with black spots. “Glowing” is an accurate description of her white fur shining in the sun. I like to draw and paint as well. What mediums do you use? Happy sketching. 😊

    I really enjoyed your illustration of your Jack Russell terrier and seeing the subject as a photo. I am illustrating my own children’s story, but I am more of a writer than a visual artist and my illustrations are much more cartoonish. It’s fun though. πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much. She’s always nearby so she tends to get drawn a lot. If you saw some of my older drawings – 10 years ago or so you would think they were far more cartoony. Practice practice practice works on almost everything. πŸ€—πŸ‘πŸ»

        Thanks for that encouragement. I will soon be dogsitting for a Jack Russell terrier mix, a female named Hubble. Because she’s a mix, she looks a bit different than your dog, with different coloring and a different shape with shorter legs, but she has quite a few Jack Russell characteristics, physically and personality-wise.

        Jack Russels are great dogs. This is only the second long legged one I have had. Our other 15 were short legged. Zoe’s number 17. πŸ€—
