Working with Ink Washes on Toned Paper

Over the last couple weeks the students in my on line class drawing practice class have been working with values—learning to see value shapes, to judge and compare one value to another.  Understanding values, the relative lightness and darkness from one area of a subject to another, and the ability to translate those values to […]

Even if Your Vision Is Giving You Fits You Can Still Get Some Sketching Done

This is a short pep talk. Your glasses don’t fit. The prescription isn’t right. Your vision is blurred by cataracts and any number of things that can happen to eyes. And you just don’t feel like sketching. Tough do it anyway. It keeps you prepped for sketching the next time your vision isn’t as blurred. […]

In Context: Life Before Covid-19

A week ago, a couple weeks ago(?) Covid-19 took out the grand finale of Ink Master 2020.  In the grand scheme of things, and with so many lives lost, it’s a small thing. But still a disappointment for the three finalists who won’t get to battle it out and find out who is “Ink Master.” […]

In Context—Philosophical Questions Arising from Watching Perry Mason

I think this page spread text pretty much says it all. (From my cataract recuperation journals.) What are television shows telling us about their historical time periods? This one is pretty obvious.

Drawing So Fast You Don’t Think About It

If you’ve got some free moments, sit and draw as fast as you can. I no longer have close vision so it’s fun just to try and capture things on the page without glasses. Distance vision for me is crisper but also blurred.  I was probably watching Project Runway or some fashion movie last year […]

Contour Drawings—Always Useful

Students in my current session of Drawing Practice have been posting contour drawings. Every group takes to it differently, some, like otters, rush along the side of the stream, darting in and out and sliding effortlessly with the current. Others stand back curious, but not committed. Like anything it takes practice. It’s why I call […]

Drawing in the Dark

Towards the end of last year Dick and I drove out one snowy night on an errand. We stopped at a gas station to fill up the tank. I took those few moments to quickly sketch the intersection before me. I did not have an interior car light. We were at a side pump that […]

Waiting Rooms: Lots of Sketching Time

  I’ve been spending a lot of time in eye doctors’ offices over the past 11 months. On mosts of those visits my eyes have been dilated right away and so I haven’t been able to sketch. But the other day I went to a neuro-ophthalmologist and my eyes weren’t immediately dilated—so I got some […]
