Today’s image isn’t from the hat series, and me sketching men with beards isn’t really a series it’s just me sketching…And of course I often work on drawing paper when I’m painting…so this is simply me sketching and having a lot of fun on the paper in the Canson 180 sketchbook. I can’t wait until […]
