Inktober – 24 Down

Seven to go. Used three pens. Lamy Ef or a micro uniball and sometimes a white pentel gel pen.

What can I say. All Zoe.
Here’s the star. She’s run me off the sofa except for the corner of one cushion. She needs the rest today.
One of my favs
She doesn’t often lie facing me.
If at first you don’t success try try again.
So I succumbed to too much white pentel gel pen. Might have been a good one otherwise.
Love this one.
The best one so far I think. Drawn w a micro uniball.

Kicking back. She rarely lies on her back.
Out my windows this am!! Love the light hitting the mist.

Margaret excited I have made it this far in inktober. Xoxoxo

Strawberry Time

So good. It’s terrible to have a fresh strawberry stand less than two miles from my house. And lots of other good fresh veggies like corn -delicious- and fresh local spinach and lettuce to name a few.
Most beautiful fresh onions I have ever seen complete with tops. Pulled that morning.

I left the house with $20 in cash in my pocket. by the time I went to pay for my items it was gone. No check and they do not take credit cards which I had plenty of.

A very kind man paid for mine when I told the lady I would run back to the house and find it or a check. Wow!! Thanks mystery man. His story is the pencil writing in the background. Had to commemorate the event.

Anyway Stillman and Birn Epsilon or hmm is it a Beta? heavy paper compared to the Alpha that I usually use. Uniball micro pen. American Journey watercolors.

Mark Making!!

Bluebells 2
20×22” Arches cold press 300#

May be a wip aka a work in progress.

First layer watercolor. Lots of yellow and green ultramarine. Slinging paint with the sword brush. What fun.

Makes a lot of Texture

Adding some darks. More paint slinging.

Waiting for some purple and blue pastels to show up from Amazon because I really didn’t have the any good purples or blues.

And I made quite a mess. Paint all over the floor and the tv screen. Oh and me. But still loved doing it.
Done for now. What do u think?! Margaret xoxoxox who should be slinging more paint.

Happy New Year

Did Drawing with Danny on YouTube today hoping he would get my engine going. All things obsolete. Bet I could draw another page.

Drawn with a pentel brush pen and colored w Caran d’ache neocolor ii. Stillman and birn alpha.

Been madly knitting. Some for birthdays. Some just because who doesn’t like red socks to warm your toes. And then there’s my son the lawyer who wanted grey. What?!! That’s no fun!!

Taking a class with Keiko Tanabe next week. Should be fun. Also one with Ian Fennelly. Both on shopkeeparty website id you would like to take a class with them. A lot of YouTube videos too which are free.

Hugs Margaret xoxoxox

Oops meant to post

This yesterday.

Drawing Van Goghs The Room with Danny Gregory. Always a fun activity on YouTube. Low pressure. Everyone yaks away via chat while Danny yaks. Last about an hour. He’s always relaxing.

As to The Room. Drawn with Caran d’ache neocolor ii which are crayons that turn into watercolors. I wet them with my fingers aka finger painted. I was too lazy to get up and find a brush so I stuck my fingers in my nearby water glass and smeared the color around.

Did u know the actual painting has turned purple. Some reaction to the underpaintings color. Oops Vincent what happened?!
