Late night doodles

Yes, up late and making marks on paper, today I’m rocking a red sharpie, a red dry erase and a red Windsor Newton watercolor maker. Dogs and peaceshocka for pages. All tiny little thorny. Small micro dogs stitched and fat. Dogs thin tiny little… again and again. lots of red. Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace….all red then I switch to using a strange black ink brush pen, foam tip style… not my fave, it might be a bit dry.

More Post-it note fun

I have been using these little yellow squares like crack, little doodle yellow scraps of sticky paper. Loving the ‘Stabilo’ point 88 markers. Doodling while kids are at karate. alway carry markers. I might make a Block, for printing out of this one. I have never done a multiple print block print, But… Expanding ‘There’ and ‘Their’ to Oscar (6) while in the middle of a monster doodle fight. Having a great day and doodling it in small moments of time.

Three woman paintings

Update: Three woman paintings, they are working out. I have been finding moments to paint. Clem reminds me while she finds a warm spot on the floor in the studio. (Thanks Steve for the great easel). Three woman paintings, 30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas. I have been going to a open sketch group and working up painting based on some of the sketches. Every painting is getting more pumped to get to the next one. The patterns in this one is making me happy, slowly I go. This is Clem’s favorite painting.

First of the year Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group. Thanks for the great event, Ann M. rocked it, and the Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group started my year off great. Tonights sketches all posted below.   Twenty minute sessions: The shadows tonight were great, the light was behind her and she was bathed in shadows. I had to really work to see the subtle changes. Ten minute sessions: I have finished this book, next book is a bigger spiral bound, I’m very excited to wreck a new one. Five minute sessions: The HANDS! She had great hand, holding wonderfully, casting shadows, and interesting archs… …

More figure drawing. I skipped into the figure drawing event today, like a kid going to get ice cream. The model was super and the lighting was challenging (in a good way). The short 3 and 5 minute poses came first, then a cookie break and then back to drawing with some longer poses. This time I didn’t forget to note the times for each drawing. A three minute pose. Getting into the 3 Minute thing, But I miss my blue pencil. This one was super awesome, the model was doing a scary ‘ROAR’ pose but kept laughing. Looking at again …

Figure drawing event, Sketchbook look.

Lots of figure drawing lately. It is good to draw like this again. I went to a class in Alpharetta, the ‘Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group’. They have a nice academic format, ten to twenty one minute warm ups, then some five and ten minute drawings. Oh and did I mention the cookies, lots of cookies. Then after a cookie break we do some longer poses. On this day, my first time at the event I forgot to note the times for each drawing… fear not I will fix that in the future. This was a short pose, I felt like warming up with hands. …

Internal combustion, eat berries, and creating pink methane. Then you fall in love buy a sofa. When your away your dog is sleeping in your spot. The reindeer have EPA restrictions, and green camouflage. Deer are color blind that’s why they have stylist. A good stylist get kisses. Love is like a reindeer kiss.
