It’s Saturday

Ilaina hot press fluid paper 15×22″

What a gorgeous day today. And lots more fun going to life modeling in Aiken then a spot of urban sketching after in Graniteville. Discovered a whole street of about 20 Gothic cottages and a church. All different colors in a row like a planned community with a church gleaming in the autumn sun. Thought it could be a great place to go urban sketching or Plein air painting on a lovely autumn day.

My drawing. I actually drew her twice. First time just from waist up. So I flipped the board and redrew her because I wanted to include the lovely curve of her hip.

There went forty minutes!!😵

Second break. Going for it. Only have about an hour left to paint.

I managed to fiddle away the first two thirds and had to paint fast to finish. Still not pleased with her eye. But it’s done. Ilaina loves it so must be ok. Right?!

My friend Ruth said it looked like some delicious cotton candy.🤗

Flesh cad red light and cad yellow light. Lots of alizarin crimson for darks on her skin. Shadows of more alizarin Andrews turquoise and dioxzine purple

Hair ultramarine and burnt umber w a bit of burnt sienna for red.

Background Andrews turquoise French yellow ochre.

Margaret who walked Alie today and is not Tahred. Xoxoxo

    Lovely.   I went to Julie Adams exhibit in Aiken in the Croft building.   She does exquisite figure and portrait oils.  Lovely article on her in Nov. BELLA publication.  I’ll try to pick one up for you.  Dawn our artBuddy takes lessons from her.  Alexis Sent from Mail for Windows 10 From: Margaret McCarthy Hunt ArtSent: Saturday, November 9, 2019 6:38 PMTo: aaronson59@gmail.comSubject: [New post] It’s Saturday Margaret Hunt posted: "Ilaina hot press fluid paper 15×22" What a gorgeous day today.
