Above: journal sketch using Stabilo Tones on page spread of Gutenberg Paper (13 x 8 inches approx.). This isn't related to today's post, it's just a continuation of my on-going discussion of Stabilo Tones. This started as a quick gesture sketch of a bird too small to see clearly, made with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. Then Stabilo Tones were applied. I started sketching at the head and when I finished my brush pen sketch I knew the head was too small so I enlarged it. The Stabilo Tones cover the first head's lines. See yesterday's post for more details on how I use these soluble wax pencils.
My friend and indefatigable artist Mimi Holmes sent me a notice about this upcoming show. If you're in Minnesota—do it, have some fun, exhibit in the MIA.
Here's the information:
