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.

Always Be Playing: Try Different Approaches with the Nearly Same Media

It is important to experiment using different media together to come up with a look that suits the subject and mood of your sketch. If you don’t push yourself to try different media in different combinations you’ll never find what you like the look of; and what you most enjoy using. In this post I’ve […]

Don’t Stop, Keep Going

  I think one of the biggest mistakes an artist keeping a visual journal or sketchbook can make is to stop when he gets frustrated. That’s when you kick it up a notch, hunker down, repeat, repeat, repeat.  Keep searching for that line, or that likeness, whatever it maybe. If you give up too quickly […]
