Quick Stop at Como Zoo

Above: Quick sketch of two ostriches on the verso page, then a more detailed head study on the recto page. One of the birds had wandered off to the edge of the paddock and we followed it. It was standing right at the fence peering over at the crowds so I was about 6 feet away […]

Why I Love Gouache

Above: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch in a Japanese Lined Journal. This sketch was made on a spread first covered with Montana Acrylic Marker and washi tape. I then painted with gouache, just the areas of the portrait that I wanted to paint, using the paint opaquely when I wanted to obscure the lines and background color, […]

If You Love A Paper—Draw More, Not Less—Don’t Save It for Another Day

Above: Quick pear sketches using the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (PPBP) in a handmade journal made with defunct printmaking paper that I'm totally besotted with. Slowly, inevitably, I am working my way through this journal I made in the early 2000s with the last of a now defunct printmaking paper. It is so fabulous not […]

Going Through Withdrawal from International Fake Journal Month

Left: Small Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Schmincke Gouache painting on Arches Cold Press Watercolor board. (4-3/16 x 6-5/8 inches for live area.)

I Married a Cartoon Character

Left: Pentel Brush Pen sketch with Daniel Smith watercolors on Arches Cold Press Watercolor board (16 x 10 inches). Painted with a 2 inch wide brush. I got so carried away working on Arches cold press watercolor board every day in April for my 2016 Fake Journal that I worked on it for real as […]

The Flexbook SKETCHBOOK by Prat: A Review

Above: Flyleaf page (black) and title page of a Flexbook Sketchbook. There is type set on this page where the eye of the finch is located. (Typically I paint over these annoyances.) There is also a place to write your name and return information at the bottom center of the page. Click on the image […]

Getting Messy on the Page

Above: A quick (less than 5 minute) sketch of Dick (he was ready to go to bed and tired), with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen in the Flex Book journal I'll review soon. (I wanted to take it to life-drawing co-op before I wrote my review.) Read below for more details. My free sketching time […]

I’m Giddy for Schmincke Pan Watercolors on Nideggen Paper

  Above: Sketch of a Belgian fashion designer—sketched of course because of his ears. Really. Schmincke pan watercolors and Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on Nideggen paper in a handmade journal 7.5 inches square. I’ve already admitted to having way too much fun in the 7.5 roughly square journal I made with Nideggen that I’m using […]
