One of the things I did today was sit in a Doctor's waiting room for a while (not about me--thank goodness!) I took my sketchbook and was happily sketching away when I heard a murmured "she's drawing you, Ernie." I was afraid to look up in case Ernie was non-plussed by my predilection for life drawing. While in the waiting room I saw a copy of AARP. Opie on the front cover!....Opie! That made me feel ancient. (I am a little ancient..but Opie on the AARP magazine! Come on!)
I went for a walk today also..I met up with a neighbor fellow and his dog (I don't know the guy's name..but his dog's name is Molly)..Here he is asking Molly if she wants a piece of steak when they get home. She told him YES! At the very end of the day I painted a study from a photo reference. I struggled to get the value relationships correct and a lot of her skin looks too red to me. It's pretty much a scraper, which explains why I opted to feature it at the bottom, instead of the top. Well, back to the drawing board! There's always tomorrow!
