Day 1200 Wow and It’s Saturday

1200 days of trying to post everyday. Sometimes WordPress burps as I call it and I find a scheduled post that never posted. No idea why. But I have tried. And posted 1200 times since July three and a half years ago.

Andrea 19×24″ Strathmore Bristol. That yellow tablet you can sometimes find at Michaels. Finally had to get a replacement from Amazon since Michaels doesn’t have one lately. Sigh.

Thirty minutes. Base coat of quin coral and quin gold shadows of dioxzine purple and cerulean . Drawn with a 4b lead pencil.

Her head had been too small so I added more hair and moved the eye. Eeek. And the upper arm too short. I erased the line at the top. Came right off. Sometimes they do sometimes they don’t.

Ten minutes later at first break. Added ultramarine blue and burnt umber.

Finished by second break. Added some quin sienna and verditer blue background. Also some white gouache highlights.

Twenty minute 4B lead sketch. Strathmore Bristol 12×24″ still has time so loved to an empty easel and drew this in the last twenty minutes session.

Jeremy Sutherland First break. Always love his Sketches. So gorgeous.

Jeremy at the end of class. Looks just like Andrea. Stonehenge conte crayon I think.

Andrew Murphys wonderful huge acrylic. 2 1/2×3′ no website but soon

Al Beyer even bigger large oil. 3×4′ no website either. 😞

Tom Needham’s small watercolor. Says he’s doing it again. Did not like the background wash. Glad to say he has a website.

Fred’s back. Missed his wild take on the model. 2×3′ acrylic

Alex who will erase this gorgeous pastel and reuse the canson paper next week.

Marilyn Hartley who currently has a great show at the Aiken Center for the Arts.

Coaches pastel this week. Love the colors. And the angle he gets sitting on the floor.

No idea who drew these but fun to see them in their variety.

Dawn acrylic 2×3′

And I think that’s a wrap folks. Some people got away before I got a chance to take a photo.

Day 1199 Flights of fantasy

Prints cards and even some originals available soon and who knows maybe a book. That would be fun. Oh what about a T-shirt or two??! I would wear this one.

sorry but this bird screamed for this quote from is it Tallulah Bankhead?! One of the famous 30-40s actresses like that.

A new current fav.

Finally done with the painting but he she may get some stamps. I think it needs a green sparkling eye. Aka save the white spot to make the sparkle.

Hmm hoping I didn’t post these already. This one reminded me of a weather vane this he heading South. For all the snowbirders in my family currently crowding Georgia highways fleeing the northern climes for the winter. Every year they pop up here with cars covered with sloshed ice dirt and salt heading south in the interstates.

Anyway tomorrow big day 1200. Hmmm a retrospective?! Dunno. Will sleep on it.

Banana bread muffins cooking in the oven. Yummmm. Ttyl tomorrow.
