In Context—Richard’s Elbow

    The sketch today and its caption pretty much explain everything. A couple weeks ago Dick had pain in his elbow and it was very swollen. I of course thought Lyme Disease since he’d been walking in a field a couple days before and ticks are still active up her. That turns out not […]

Nostalgie Is A Fun Paper

    I think the sketch pretty much shows how much fun I was having on this paper so I’m not going to write more except to say you can use the category list or search engine on this blog to find more Nostalgie pages. The paper is smooth, heavyweight, and a delight for all […]

Waiting Rooms: Lots of Sketching Time

  I’ve been spending a lot of time in eye doctors’ offices over the past 11 months. On mosts of those visits my eyes have been dilated right away and so I haven’t been able to sketch. But the other day I went to a neuro-ophthalmologist and my eyes weren’t immediately dilated—so I got some […]

Remembrance Day: I’m Away from the Computer

Today is Remembrance Day. I write about this almost every year. I think I have said what I can say. Enter “Remembrance Day” in my blog’s search engine and you’ll find those past posts.  If you’ve been reading the blog carefully, or even casually, you all know this about me: I’m anti-war, I pro-soldiers, I’m […]

A Quick Portrait Sketch: Watercolor on Toned Paper

        Read about the sketch in the caption. I was having a lot of fun working on this tan-toned paper from Strathmore. It’s their 400 Series Mixed Media Toned paper. At 184 lbs. it’s a great weight also for collage. In the detail you can see I’m able to get streaky strokes […]

Fun with Watercolor: Sometimes It’s Best To Use as Little Water as Possible

    To finish today’s sketch I used as little water as possible with my watercolors on a non-wet-media paper. This post shows you the ink sketch, the painted face, and then my decision to paint a background of color behind the face.  What this post can’t really show you is how much fun I […]

The Piecemeal Portrait Tutorial That Wasn’t

To keep myself drawing while I’m working out what my post-cataract eyesight will be I’ve been videotaping my sketching sessions. I find that the resultant videos allow me to look again at my process and ask myself questions about the progress I’m making with my eyesight.  It also takes the focus off of whether or […]

When Your Favorite Shows Disappear…

What can you do when your favorite TV shows disappear? Nothing, unless you own a television studio. The rest of us have to live with the reality that characters we loved spending time with are no more. Obviously this bothers me a lot because I write about it every so often when it bubbles up […]

Redefining the Self: Another Watercolor Portrait on Fluid 100 Hot Press Watercolor Paper

        I tend to work in a series and this was item three in a series this spring that started with the image I posted in September 16th’s blog post. The second image in the series was the image in Monday’s blog post. What Do They Have in Common That Holds Them […]
