Another Dog Portrait…

As we leave July and my Patreon discussions about dog portraits I simply wanted to make a case, through one more portrait, about contrast. It’s vital, it draws the eye, it’s fun to build up.  Here’s a sketch from 2018. I liked the textures (and suggested textures) so much that all I wanted was a […]

The Case for Not Finishing a Sketch

I’m the first person to encourage people to finish what they start. In fact I encourage people to push past the point where they think they have finished, because until you “break” a few sketches you don’t really know where that point of finish resides. But I also wanted to put a word in today […]

Coming Up in July on Patreon

During July I’ll continue my discussion of dog portraits. Subscribers can watch me sketch this ink portrait. I’ll also look at minimal line and wash approaches to sketching a white dog. I hope you’ll come and join the conversation.

Accessories for Today’s Virtual Minnesota State Fair Sketch-In

Today at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. CDT I’ll be live streaming a sketching demo. It’s a Virtual State Fair Sketch-In because I won’t be at the Fairgrounds—the Minnesota State Fair was cancelled this year due to the Pandemic. I’m glad we are staying safe but I’m always at the Fair on this day in […]

A Virtual Minnesota State Fair “Sketch IN” Saturday, August 29, 2020

Look, if this were any other year you wouldn’t be getting one post from me on this day, let alone two—I’d be two days into my Minnesota State Fair Sketching experience. Something I’ve been doing every year for over 25 years. The pandemic means we aren’t going to have the Minnesota State Fair this year. […]

In Context: On The Work Table

What’s on my work table? Every so often I gather the stuff up and sort it. Some of it ends up in my journal. For the past two years we’ve had problems with our ductless a.c. units. This has meant I’ve had to move everything in the studio to one corner of the room every […]
