Direct Brush Sketching with Another Rigger/Liner Brush

Last month I did another rigger/liner brush test—sketching Rick Niece again. While I missed the likeness I had a ton of fun with the line and shapes I could make with the Silver Ruby Satin Scriptliner 2. This was, and looks like it will continue to be, my favorite, or one of my favorites going […]

Another Liner Brush Test with a Direct Brush Portrait

Here’s another direct brush painting I did with a liner brush.  I used only the Princeton Select Liner P3750L-1 #1 to make this portrait.  I found it difficult to write with it (though not as difficult as some of the others I’ve tested), but just in case I’ll transcribe my notes: Soft, good pigment load, […]

I’m not testing a lot of stuff right now (downsizing, blah, blah, blah; and a lot of paint I want to use […]

Direct Brush—On Inexpensive Paper

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 […]

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. For all my portraits I was using muses in the Sktchy App. So many great bearded men who post photos of themselves for us to sketch!
