Margaret tahred from doing taxes all afternoon. Done and on their way. Thank goodness. Xoxoxo
A lazy Saturday
I was hoping to sketch when we got to Aiken and I schlepped the big sketchbook and the neocolor now found in my purse along with an assortment of pens and pencils. Well I am now ready for the next happening l, right?
A quick sketch
Fun sketch along with John Muirs Law on Shopkeeparty’s YouTube. Give it a whirl! It goes live shortly.

Drawing with Danny Gregory
When you aren’t inspired to draw or paint guarantee Danny Gregory on his YouTube Draw with me show will get you going. Free every Thursday at Noon.
We all drew a pigeon skeleton today. Well the show was last weeks show. I was busy so did it today. That’s the great thing about YouTube. The shows wait for you and ready when u are.
He furnished the picture we drew.
I used a Micro univalve pen and a namiki fude. Oh and a lamy ef. All that cross hatching was eating up the ink. I may add watercolor to it but letting it dry overnight before I do.
Stillman and birn alpha.
Catching up on escape to the Chateau on YouTube then my binge of Killing Eve on Hulu. Love watching the British couple rehabbing a decrepit five story chateau WITH mote in Escape to the Chateau. The jobs they undertake are monumental on a show string budget. Watch it. They are intriguing. A visit there is on my bucket list.
Day 237 Undercover spying
I like to draw random people when I am out and about. Get bored sitting in a class or in talk and then I draw the people I can see nearby but I don’t want them to see me drawing them. Thus undercover spying.
Spent the day going thru old photos of random people and tossing them into recycle. Or terrible print outed photos. They look blurry. Who needs them when they are on your iPad available for painting or running a slide show?!
Probably should paint them. Found my tiny whiskey painters box today when I was cleaning. Hurrah!!
Hahnamuhle journal with no idea of what pen. Probably a Lamy EF loaded with eel skin ink. Lettering done with my namiki fude today.
Day 161 a spot of urban sketching
While I was out running a few errands yesterday.
Love this old red pickup. If it had power steering I would buy one I think. Big enough to carry everything you need! It sits outside a vintage store near me. I drove by it all the time and admire it.
The sketch. Lamy Ef I think.

Day 160 – Wow
We are already 160 days into the corona virus epidemic. Hard to believe but then I guess 170000 dead says it all. Right?!! 😢😢😢
So I entertain myself with drawing my back porch birds and the other animals in my life. I do love to think about what they think. So I give you the Beauty contest page 😬
Lamy Ef, Caran d’ache neocolor ii, Noodlers Eelskin Ink, Stillman and Birn Alpha.
Five kitties on my back porch. Anyone need one. Wild cats one and all but hopefully tame soon.
Terrible pics. They really are adorable playing the way kittens do.
Margaret xoxoxo who hopes you all are safe and healthy. Bet I will be drawing kitties soon but first I better wash those windows. 🤭🤭🤭
Day 153 Mustang
My youngest son has always wanted a Mustang and last fall he finally bought one. You can read about the 64 1/2 Mustang here.
Yesterday I decided to draw it. Did I say he did not want ANY Mustang but an old vintage Mustang. He’s wanted it since at least high school. A red one.
Hmm he didn’t get a red one but he did get a lovely original Mustang in metallic blue.
Can’t decide if I ruined it coloring it. Stay tuned for more mustang torture. Ps it rides great w an engine that growls.

Day 152 A Twofer
Drawing vehicles with Danny Gregory today on YouTube. Every Thursday at noon if you remember. I forgot last week.

Oddly the paper seems to loose its finish once you wet the paper so the ink acts differently.
