What I Did in the Pandemic: Sketched MORE Peppers Of Course!

  Peppers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and I eat quite a lot of them. Here, two years past the sketches in my last post, I’m still sketching peppers. I’ll always sketch them.  That’s because I’m always eating them. I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t have at least […]

Another Post Promoting Direct Brush Pen Sketching: It’s So Fun

Yep, every so often I write a new post to convince everyone to use a brush pen for direct sketching, i.e., just draw with it, no pencil sketch, no net. It’s just too fun. So it’s the new year, and the Pandemic is still raging, and I thought it would be a good time to […]
