When you post on Instagram your images shuffle over and your whole grid of images, all the way back to your first post shuffle over. Rows change contents. I know there are folks who really plan the organization of their posts so that there is some type of cohesive whole going on. But since my […]
I certainly don’t regret using one of the last pages of a defunct and beloved watercolor paper to sketch only in ink…but you can click on the image and see in context what I do regret.
Dick and I discussed this recently—the dust has settled, Buddy has had a productive year since his return. He is hanging in there. But Dick and I both agree that the first words, I screamed were, “I’ve killed Buddy.” I don’t know why I didn’t write that on the day. I know most of the […]
Yep, not finished yet—on this season Guiseppi had great hair too. On another note—I wish Paul had listed at least 10 reasons for meringue failing. I have never had a failed meringue—but my experience with them has been limited to making Baked Alaska in the 1980s. I’m about to embark on more meringue adventures and […]
Another sketch showing the amazing hair of baker Rochica (I hope I’ve got the correct spelling of her name) from the Great British Baking Show. Today find someone with extraordinary hair and capture that person in your journal. Enjoy his/her/their presence in the world—they are a gift.
Sometimes I’m watch the baking shows for ideas for future bakes, but when this young woman was on, I admit I watched it for her hair. What amazing hair. I’m just sorry the pen lines I got down on her face made her look angry and not puzzled. So I focused on that beautiful hair. […]
Sometimes it is fun to sit down and draw stubble. Lots and lots of stubble. I find this entertaining, and joyful. I find noting the growth direction, the length, the density—all fun. But then I sat in the Bell Museum for a whole afternoon years ago, drawing every line of fur on a deer. This […]
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, […]
You’d think it was a slow day from my excited comment about lard on this journal page. It’s wistfulness. I bought two types of lard from “Fat City.” They reached expiration date (even stored in the freezer!) because I didn’t have the kitchen space to set up to make some savory pies, during this downsizing […]
In May 2023 on Patreon I’m going to be demonstrating and discussing working loosely. What choices do you make? How do you go forward? How do you train your eye to be comfortable with looseness? You may have seen a speed video of this sketch on my Instagram account. On Patreon you can see […]
