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.

A Little Bit of Piecemeal Evolution: Dog Portrait

Looking at a Piecemeal Portrait

I’ve been writing about my “piecemeal portraits” for a couple years now. Recently I took a couple process shots while I was making one from a photo inspiration on Sktchy.

Quick Gouache Portrait on Hahnemühle Nostalgie

Above: Gouache sketch in a large A4 (8.27 x 11.69 inch) portrait orientation Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook. I started with raw sienna brush lines and just kept painting. It was way past the time to put out fresh white as I was using up paint, but it was too fun to stop and put the filbert down. (Mixing […]
