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. Something I’ve been doing every year for over 25 years. The pandemic means we aren’t going to have the Minnesota State Fair this year. […]

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.

My friend Terri Wentzka took this photo of me as I sketched a turkey at the Fair, using my portable "table." The entire table is attached to a monopod. The brush holder is in the top right corner of the table.

Making a Simple Brush Holder for Your Travel Brushes

This year at the Fair I wanted to use real brushes with water, not water brushes, when painting.  Since I stand when I sketch it meant I had to have a way to put all my supplies and journal on one work surface. Dick and I made up a prototype “travel table” using plastic corrugated […]

This is the first sketch on the gray paper I did this day. I started with red pencil, but abandoned it because I didn't like the red on the paper. I went instead to the Pentel Brush pen.

Summer Chicken Sketch Out with Metro Sketchers

Earlier this summer a local Minneapolis couple who keep chickens invited Metro Sketchers over to their home—they have 6 chickens! Sketchers filled the yard on fold out and lawn chairs while the chickens weaved in and about nibbling on cracked corn sprinkled on the grass. One chicken decided that my wash water (which didn’t have […]
