Getting Some Sketching Practice In

The other day I was writing about a friend alerting me to the fact that Amazon Prime is now carrying some of the seasons of “Portrait Artist of the Year.” I have loved this show from the moment I heard about it from one of my English friends. Here are a couple sketches I made […]

I’m Always Looking at Hair

A brush pen sketch from a Sktchy muse (the app is now called Museum). I was working in a Hahnemühle Travel Journal (drawing paper), with a Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen FB (fine brush). Sometimes people present you with hair styles that you absolutely are required to sketch. That’s all I can say. Oh, and […]

Some Thoughts About Betty White

Actress and comedian Betty White died on December 31, 2021, just short of her 100th birthday. Dick botched the notification system we have in place yet again. We are having a serious re-think about the current system. I had to point out that “we are not OK.”  When your life spans the 1960s to the […]

Can’t Resist Those Almost Dried Out Brush Pens

Because of some equipment failures and other glitches in the system I’ve been behind in processing journal page scans. Here’s one of my favorites from 2020. This is a sketch, using a dried out brush pen, of the detective in “Dead Still.” I’ve written about the show before. It’s a favorite of mine. It involves […]

A Watercolor Sketch of Alun Armstrong

Alun Armstrong’s character in “New Tricks” wears a knitted watch cap in many episodes. And so in March 2021 when I was sketching him every day I ended up sketching him in such a cap quite a lot. That’s fine because I think it’s fun to sketch knitted textures.  Here is the sketch before I […]

More Alun Armstrong and More Messing about with a Dried Out Pen

I keep returning to Alun Armstrong the subject of my 31-day March 2021 project—I keep finding more drawings that didn’t get scanned because my backup equipment failed. (Issues still not resolved, making it very interesting here.) I just wrote a post last week about using a dried out brush pen and if you missed that […]

Series Television’s Response To The Pandemic

There have been numerous ways that series television has responded to the constraints and realities imposed on production by the Pandemic. This is one of my favorites: Comedians sitting on couches watching episodes of “House Hunters.”

Since I Was on the Topic of Hair…

Hair, it’s one of the things that pulls me to draw a portrait. How does that person have his or her hair? I am particularly susceptible to Jane Austen dramatizations—so much wonderful 18th century or 19th century hair depending on how the film decides to go with fashion at the cusp of time. Or anything […]

In Context: Wake Up and Sketch

  I couldn’t resist the title to today’s post—I think everyone needs to sketch of course. But also, if you end up waking up because of outside street noise, don’t stress, just sketch.

When Your Brush Pen Dries Out…Keep Drawing

There’s a moment when your brush pen starts to run out of ink, but it’s not quite dry yet. In fact if you let it rest for a little bit part way through a drawing it seems to get a second wind in only a few minutes. If you can’t wait that long, simply have […]
