Let Yourself Push Your Sketch Marks Now and Then

OK, we can’t get the whites of the paper back when we are working in pen and ink (unless we resort to the X-acto blade, or ProWhite gouache), but it’s still a useful endeavor to keep pushing with the lines. I find that working with a dried out pen pushes me to be a little […]

Yet Another Wizard

  Yes another wizard; this is one of my favorites. I’ve been having tons of fun painting wizards in-between the demands of downsizing. Tired of sorting papers to put into storage? Go sketch a wizard.  At the end of this post you can also see the full-page spread where this portrait was sketched. And on […]

More Hair—a Selfie

  I’m wrapping up the current hair series with a selfie. My braided hair of course. I don’t do selfies often. I have to stand in the bathroom and juggle pens and palettes.  I was frustrated late one night because my foot was in a cast and my vision was particularly frustrating. But there is […]

The Anti-gravity Properties of Hair

  Sometimes you don’t need to finish a sketch, the idea just takes over. A red marker that was drying out, on a page spread in a large (about 11 x 8 inch) landscape Hahnemühle watercolor sketchbook. Pick up a pen and just go for it today.

I’m Always Looking at Hair

A brush pen sketch from a Sktchy muse (the app is now called Museum). I was working in a Hahnemühle Travel Journal (drawing paper), with a Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen FB (fine brush). Sometimes people present you with hair styles that you absolutely are required to sketch. That’s all I can say. Oh, and […]

Television Mysteries

Things have come up and interrupted my writing of blog posts. I’ve got little folders with the dates and topics and the drawings all set up and yet I keep getting “called” away. I decided rather than try to make the reasoned, composed, and collected blog post about all the mysteries on television I’ve been […]

Can’t Resist Those Almost Dried Out Brush Pens

Because of some equipment failures and other glitches in the system I’ve been behind in processing journal page scans. Here’s one of my favorites from 2020. This is a sketch, using a dried out brush pen, of the detective in “Dead Still.” I’ve written about the show before. It’s a favorite of mine. It involves […]

Warm Up Sketches and a Watercolor Portrait Demo

  I made the above sketch in June of this year when my bronchitis was just ramping up. After a couple warm up sketches I ended up making what is currently my favorite sketch of the year. (I framed it and hung it on the wall as a reminder to me of all the fun […]

My Favorite Type of Hair to Sketch

I was so caught up writing about sketching hair that I forgot to mention my favorite hair to sketch: Stubble. Here is Alton Brown from the Food Network, the star/host of many shows I devour.  He is sporting both beard stubble and scalp stubble. The Pentel Brush Pen with pigment ink creates such a bold […]

I Forgot to Tell You About September on Patreon

I just realized, in putting up the new blog side bar image for OCTOBER that I forgot to put up the one for September. I’m sorry because it was a great month—8 videos (the last one goes up on Monday). I focused on preparing for a project and working in ink (dip pen, brush pen, […]
