I think if I sketched on an iPad doing white hairlines would be pretty easy, but then I wouldn’t have the fun of messing with white gouache, or gel pens, or any of the things I end up using while working on paper.
I got very fussy at the end of this sketch, but I’m not bothered in the least because I had fun with every stroke. Sometimes being a little fussy pulls you right into the process.
If you’d like to see me painting dogs subscribe to my Patreon site. I already have several dog portrait videos you can watch available when you subscribe, and this one will be coming along early in 2022.
In the meantime I’m writing about process. We make great skill level leaps when we pay attention to process.
