Did Draw with me yesterday with Danny Gregory on YouTube. We were drawing our houses without looking at them.
This is my house. Might have a redraw since I didn’t draw the woods in front of the house. Bytw I call the stairs the stairway to heaven. The house is on stilts because it’s on the Flood zone of the Savannah River and there are plenty of stairs inside and out.
Drawn with a micro Uniball and painted w watercolor in a stillman and birn alpha journal.

Drawing with Danny from his Thanksgiving post. I was a little busy that day cooking and baking. Hmm I was busy almost everyday over the holidays visiting my son and his family during our very reduced Thanksgiving gathering. Just myself and them but we enjoyed it. We found out we could enjoy not working ourselves to death producing the big turkey extravaganza.
In the meantime there’s always next year.
Unpacking done. Now it’s time to catch up on art!!
Also trying not to binge watch Offspring on Netflix’s LOVE it. Only 84 shows. 5 down 79 to go. Xoxoxox

Zoe and I have been a little under the weather. She had dental surgery and I had a shingles shot that made me feel just ill Achy fever fatigued. My arm still hurts three days later. The first two days I couldn’t raise my arm. Not ideal for lugging a sock puppy up down the stairs. She felt so rotten after surgery she wanted to throw up wandered around in a daze finally pooped in the upstairs shower. She was so apologetic for that. I told her no worries it was the perfect spot. Try it again next time she has a problem. That happens about once every other year.
Today she posed for me while I held a chunk of cracker for her to drool over. Something I used to do with my old Jacks when I wanted to draw them. Also works when you want to take a good pic of your dog.
Anyway we are down to the last two episodes of New Tricks so ta ra. Been a fun romp that reminds me of the curmudgeons on the Closer.
Margaret xoxoxo still wondering why she got that shot since she’s never had chicken pox though she’s been repeatedly exposed to it.
Flew off to Assisi Italy today with Vlad Yesileyev on his paint along. So far. Leaning toward this is DONE but might change my mind in the am.
The value sketch by Vlad Yesilev. I am bad. I don’t look at the shades. Rather look at the painting.
I use a muffin Pan to mix the first wash-yellow ochre cobalt and alizarin – in so I can save it for the next painting instead of tossing. I do have to stir it up before use because the color settles. Moving along flowers started.
Same colors as first wash and burnt umber dioxzine and Andrew’s turquoise.
Well underway almost done. I forgot to take photos. Oops. We added indigo mixed w cobalt to our colors. Should have had two windows but I messed up. So I have three up top. Another oops.
I decided I needed to fix the top of the left door. It was NOT aim perspective.
So now I am done. Pot kitties fed. Chicken pot pie in the oven. Time to put my feet up and snuggle Zoe for a while.
