Another Post Promoting Direct Brush Pen Sketching: It’s So Fun

Yep, every so often I write a new post to convince everyone to use a brush pen for direct sketching, i.e., just draw with it, no pencil sketch, no net. It’s just too fun. So it’s the new year, and the Pandemic is still raging, and I thought it would be a good time to […]

Protected: Trick or Treat Sketch?

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

The first sketch I made on World Beard Day. I got a bit of a late start. I started large—this is about 12 x 18 inches, Pentel Brush pen and watercolor, with an acrylic marker background.

In Context—Direct Brush Sketch and A Brief Review of “Taboo.”
