In this sketch from August 2019 I played with large flat brush to lay in mostly transparent washes of watercolor. I was watching TV late in the evening and the actor Anna Chancellor came on. I paused the TV because I wanted to work on the angles of the planes of her face and particularly […]
Go on, make some marks. You know you want to, what’s stopping you? Even with uncorrected vision I have moments with my eyes. Moments which allow me, even if I can’t see accurately, to at least make a series of marks that describe a texture, follow a form, and create a pattern on the page […]
It is important to experiment using different media together to come up with a look that suits the subject and mood of your sketch. If you don’t push yourself to try different media in different combinations you’ll never find what you like the look of; and what you most enjoy using. In this post I’ve […]

I used a Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen FB, watercolor, and a 1/2 inch flat brush. Take a moment to look at all the pieces in […]
This ultra-fine brush tipped pen from Pentel—I don’t know what it’s called…The barrel reads: “Brush Sign Pen Artist.” It’s one of their Sign Pens in that it has dye-based, fugitive, water-soluble ink, but unlike their other “sign pen” it doesn’t have a solid fiber tip—it has an ultra thin, ultra fine, brush with individual […]
I think the sketch pretty much shows how much fun I was having on this paper so I’m not going to write more except to say you can use the category list or search engine on this blog to find more Nostalgie pages. The paper is smooth, heavyweight, and a delight for all […]
