More Thoughts From Chekov

Brush pen and ink wash in a lined non-art paper notebook. Sketching while watching “Top Chef.” And thinking as I move through my day.

TV Competition Shows

Chekov was prescient. Brush pen and ink wash in a bookstore lined notebook (because I love painting and using wet media like ink wash on non-art papers).

Staying Up Late to Draw

  The page spread text is today’s post. The rest is just details…  I painted first, then let the paper dry and added the ink, a bit of a turn around for me. I was working with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra fine brush pen. This was towards the end of the life of my […]

Frank Buffalo Hyde

A couple months ago I ran across a painting competition show “Exhibit: Finding the Next Great Artist.” Like all these creative competition shows it has some good points and some negatives. In general I enjoy these shows because I love process and I love watching people create stuff. One thing I really liked about this […]

More Fun Hair from the Great British Baking Show

Yep, not finished yet—on this season Guiseppi had great hair too. On another note—I wish Paul had listed at least 10 reasons for meringue failing. I have never had a failed meringue—but my experience with them has been limited to making Baked Alaska in the 1980s. I’m about to embark on more meringue adventures and […]

British Baking—More Amazing Hair

Another sketch showing the amazing hair of baker Rochica (I hope I’ve got the correct spelling of her name) from the Great British Baking Show.   Today find someone with extraordinary hair and capture that person in your journal. Enjoy his/her/their presence in the world—they are a gift.

In Context: Trying to Catch Up…

I’ve been relocating my studio and trying to unpack and organize. I think I’m getting to the end then I see another box, and behind that another box. Sometimes I wonder why I didn’t leave most of those boxes in storage. But right now I can’t go there mentally. I need to keep opening and […]

A Cut Above—Wood Carving Competition Show

Spoiler alert, I’m going to write about who won “A Cut Above” season one. Don’t read if you want to watch a chainsaw-woodcarving composition and be surprised.     First I just have to say I love Adam Beach. He’s a great actor and now we know he’s a great TV show host too—who absolutely […]

Excitement over Lard

You’d think it was a slow day from my excited comment about lard on this journal page. It’s wistfulness. I bought two types of lard from “Fat City.” They reached expiration date (even stored in the freezer!) because I didn’t have the kitchen space to set up to make some savory pies, during this downsizing […]

Studies: Observing the Subject Over and Over

Studies are something all visual artists do, pretty much every day.  Studies are about cementing the observation of a subject into a visual approach you can apply to your paper or canvas. But studies don’t always happen before you make a more finished piece. On this page spread, which is in a Canson 180 Sketchbook […]
