Project Friday: Painting Value Shapes

Project Friday: DIY

Left: Both images today are in a 7 x 7 inch handbound journal containing Nideggen paper. They were made during the same evening while watching TV.

Project Friday: Working With Project Boundaries To Stretch Creatively

Left: A page from my 2015 fake journal. I had hoped that every page would be filled with a gouache painting like this one. But that wasn't quite what happened. Read today's post to see what did happen, and why that was the best possible outcome. (Gouache on Stonehenge gray.)   Sometimes having too many […]

Project Friday—Focusing on Details

Above: Page spread from a 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia Journal. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketches. Warm up on the left, detail study on the right.
