Looking Back at My March Project: Sketching Alun Armstrong

So much has kept me from scanning the many sketches of made of Alun Armstrong in March 2021 #MarchisSketchAlunArmstrongMonth. But I did manage to scan a few of the sketches in the past week. There are many, many more, some I quite like, some have no resemblance to Armstrong and I can only look at […]

Two Things I’ve Just Learned

Since the pandemic started I’ve needed more containers for food. Just before the pandemic I had returned to baking bread after about a 6-year break. But with the pandemic I decided I’d rather make all the bread we eat than have Dick bring loaves home from the Co-op that had been handled and coughed on. […]

Commit to a Line or Correction

A couple days ago I wrote about accepting wonky lines. Here’s a sketch I haven’t posted, but just came across in organizing my files. Sometimes I have so much fun with the ears I don’t reach quite high enough for the head—but I commit to the correction and just start adding the hair, or in […]

Warm Up Sketches Can Sometimes Be the Best of the Day

I think that the warm up sketches you make can often be the best of the day. You haven’t settled into the need to complete a task yet. You haven’t tightened out of play yet. And you haven’t had your vitamins yet—a healthy does of stubble (this time on the head instead of the chin). […]

Ink Wash Portrait: I Miss Gelatin-Sized Watercolor Papers

This is another comic guest from “As Yet Untitled with Alan Davies.” I’m sorry I don’t remember his name, the book is in storage. A lovely 8 x 7.5 inch journal that always seems a perfect size to me. I used brush pen and ink wash on this sketch. And I did pause the TV […]

Now Use Even Fewer Strokes…

Did you spend your weekend working with your brush pen like I suggested on Friday? If so you’re ready to use even fewer strokes. Draw your subject with as as few strokes as possible. Think before you draw a contour line or make texture marks. Do you really need ink marks for that contour? For […]

In Context—Books I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been downsizing my library, so I have been spending my free-time in the past year rereading books before I give them away. Here’s a character’s take on crime-novel reading. I have my own theories on the popularity of mysteries and crime fiction. And of course on my own readership of those genres. But hey, […]

In Context—Playing Catch Up

  I’ve been offline for five days and it seems like I’ve forgotten everything about the computer and the programs I work in. I’m playing catch-up and a post here was on the top of the list. It has been a difficult month physically for me: increased vision difficulties and a back spasm that made […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Another Peek into “Bleak House”

In February I was sketching a lot of other folks besides Alun Armstrong. Here’s a sketch of Timothy West from “Bleak House.” I really can’t resist dundrearies!
