Using Little Bits of Paper

I write about using little bits of paper every so often. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I have another post on this coming up later this month. Here’s a sketch I started on a yellow legal pad. I was trying to decide if I would sketch or paint, and I wanted to […]

A Little Bit of Piecemeal Evolution: Dog Portrait

The other day I was working on a dog sketch from an image on Sktchy. I ran off the page with my green brush pen sketch and of course turned it into a “Piecemeal Style” painting, complete with washi tape and of course finished off with gouache. I didn’t think about taking photos at each […]

Looking at a Piecemeal Portrait

I’ve been writing about my “piecemeal portraits” for a couple years now. Recently I took a couple process shots while I was making one from a photo inspiration on Sktchy. My photographs aren’t taken with lights and so the color is off, but you can still get the idea. I’m working on setting up a […]

There’s No Undo with Traditional Media—But You Can Scan Versions!

Stressful times send me to the drawing board. We’ve got some family health issues going on right now, so after Dick went to bed last night I stayed up and played with paint for two hours.

Thinking About Line

  Left: A quick "Piecemeal Style" sketch of Susan Hampshire who was in a show I caught one night not long ago and despite aging looks as lovely as she ever did, with that wonderful line of her nose, her neck, those cheeks… I started on one 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Fabriano Tiziano […]

I Don’t Trust the House and Another Piecemeal Style Painting

Left: A really large piecemeal style painting—4 sheets of 8.5 x 11 inch paper, so it's 17 inches wide and 22 inches tall. I saw someone with an interesting head and ear negative space and then I started sketching it from memory directly with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. I couldn't remember the odd sweater […]
