Day482 Paris

We should be touching down any minute in Paris. Can’t wait to get sketching in France. To stand in the haunts of some of my favorite painters Monet Degas Matisse Van Gogh and Cezanne will be amazing. To visit the Rouen cathedral that Monet painted how many times?! Got to paint it at least once. 

  

In the meantime going to post some of my Inktober sketches that I painted with the palettes I am taking with me. 

  
This one lit up my Instagram feed. And yes I did strip my kitchen floor. Evidently it also striped my fingernails even though I wore gloves but hey my floor looks brand new!! 

  
A quick brush pen sketch of one of the audience members at Best of Augusta. I just loved her look and couldn’t resist sketching her. Sometimes I find the audience members much more entertaining to draw than the bands that are playing. Her skin is burnt sienna with ultramarine blue for shadows. The hair is ultramarine blue and burnt umber. 

  
My dog Honey was painted with the Whiskey Painter palette only two colors. Ultramarine blue and burnt umber. Period. 

Thanks for reading. Pass me a croissant please!!

Day 464 the last Best of Augusta #4

   
Another favorite of Bill Karp. Bytw he’s playing at the Cotton Patch in downtown Augusta this Saturday nite. 

I really like Bill’s stance in these.  Especially the first one. 

  Hand is a little rough but otherwise I like it. My excuse?? 

It was 9 pm and I was tired and on a sugar high from all the sweets at Best of Augusta. 
Oh what was my favorite food?? T’s out on Mike Padgett Hwy. They kept the hot hush puppies and fried catfish and tartar sauce flowing. And it was perfectly cooked. Everyone else had chicken chicken and more chicken.  
  
The last sketch I did of Bill. Not a perfect hand but I like it.

We left loaded up with cake, cookies and Krispy Kreme donuts.  All those sweet treats still sitting on the kitchen counter. 

Thanks for reading.

Day 463 more Best of Augusta #3

 

  Once i switched to the Pentel brush pen life improved. Or maybe it was Bill Karp singing Frank Sinatra?! His 100th birthday. Frank’s not Bills!!!  
This is my favorite sketch of Bill. A good stance. Shoes look good and a good hand. Score!! 

I kept trying to draw Bills hand. He waved them around a lot. I. Perpetual motion. 
 

Finally a good hand though I made him a little fat. Oops sorry Bill!! 

Thanks for reading.

Day 462 more Best of Augusta

I forgot to mention that I was sketching with my friend Ruth Pearl again like at arts in the hearts. Always a lot of fun drawing with her.  

  PHillip Lee and a friend. I can’t remember his name but when they aren’t singing at clubs you will find them singing at Wesley United Methodist Church on Sundays. 

This is actually the last sketch I did of Phillip. Done with a Noodler Konrad  with carbon Pltinum black ink. Better but not great.  Usually I love my Noodler pens but NOT last nite.  
Another sketch of Phillip with the Konrad.   
This was the one that made me put up the a Noodler Creaper. Oops what was I thinking? A warm up right?! 

Thanks for reading.
