Finding An Art Buddy Might Be Detrimental to Your Drawing Practice

      Yes, I said it. I called out one of the elephants in the room. Finding a sketching/art buddy to go sketching with might just turn out to be detrimental to your drawing practice.

Seeing Color In Faces When Painting

In this sketch from August 2019 I played with large flat brush to lay in mostly transparent washes of watercolor.   I was watching TV late in the evening and the actor Anna Chancellor came on. I paused the TV because I wanted to work on the angles of the planes of her face and particularly […]
