Staying Up Late to Draw

  The page spread text is today’s post. The rest is just details…  I painted first, then let the paper dry and added the ink, a bit of a turn around for me. I was working with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra fine brush pen. This was towards the end of the life of my […]

Frank Buffalo Hyde

A couple months ago I ran across a painting competition show “Exhibit: Finding the Next Great Artist.” Like all these creative competition shows it has some good points and some negatives.

Another Green Sheet

When I’m testing a pen or a paper (or in this case both) I like to work with them for several days. So the day after that green lady from my previous post, I sketched this woman—again a fair goer from @earthsworld. My thoughts on this face were a bit different. I added a bit […]

Why That Color of Paper?

Artists make choices all day long. Sometimes the choices are obvious. I drew my dogs all the time, obviously because they were live in life models.
