More on Hair—Some Beards

Beards, I tend to draw them all the time. Towards the end of my live stream while drawing a portrait of Rick in a top hat I mention why beards are so essential a feature to draw. Some crisp white watercolor paper, a pen, some paint, a little bit of winding down at the end […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Another Peek into “Bleak House”

In February I was sketching a lot of other folks besides Alun Armstrong. Here’s a sketch of Timothy West from “Bleak House.” I really can’t resist dundrearies!

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something.

In Context—Hair Volume and a Note

Volume in hair is always such a glorious surprise. It can float right off the page. (This is a page spread from December 2018. I’m not sure why I didn’t have a date and time on this sketch—I usually write that information automatically on each sketch or page when completed. This book has been archived, […]

The Simple Volume of Hair

Sometimes the best way to capture hair is to look at the volume and capture the large value shapes. It can be more striking than fussing would be. It can make real the cast shadows because of its suggested substance. (Have you guessed yet? October is about hair. I get asked about hair all the […]
