Looking at Canson Heritage Watercolor Paper

(Yep, I am not happy about the sizing, but there you have it.) Since then I’ve been working on it to complete a project. I haven’t posted sketches […]

Sketching with a Water-Soluble Pen and Watercolors

Sometimes I like my sketch lines to be a little less strident than a black brush pen or black ink pen. It’s also fun to sketch with water-soluble markers which can dissolve into the wet media washes you add later. In the sketch posted today I began with a quick Tombow brush pen sketch in […]

Phyllis Fights Perfectionism and Doesn’t Even Break a Sweat

Above: A sketch of Phyl while she colors—she likes to hold the book in her lap, not on her desk. Pen and watercolor in the Moleskine Sketchbook I was recently testing. The sketch is from May, but today's post is about something that happened Wednesday while she was sketching… I sat opposite Phyl. She held […]
