What I Did in the Pandemic: Pepper Sketches Of Course!

    I’ve been trying to get my digital files organized, and I came across this post from 2020 during the pandemic. I don’t know why I had this large landscape book, and Akademie Watercolor Journal from Hahnemühle.  This is their student line of paper. The book is nicely bound, the paper is OK, but […]

Snow Piles, We’ve Seen the Last of Them, for Now

Sometimes projects sneak up on us. Sometimes projects are simply the manifestation of a habit. Sometimes it’s fun to catch up on scanning your journal pages and seeing the massive amounts of snow you’ve just dealt with.

Yep, hats; just me drawing people with hats on. Sometimes I worked in my current journal, sometimes I worked on loose sheets for my loose sheets journal. I found some while moving old digital file.

A Little Dip Pen and Watercolor

At the beginning of the month I had a pen sketch of this muse from Sktchy. Here today is another sketch, from the same muse with different facial hair. I’ve used a different painting approach: dip pen and watercolor. (See the caption for additional media comments.) This is actually a painting made on a sheet […]

Things Our Journals Tell Us

If you look at my journal from January and February 2020 you learn a lot about me.  You learn that I like to use my lunch break to watch a little bit of TV and sketch. You’ll learn that I became fascinated with the young James Corden in “Gaven & Stacey.” You’ll also learn that […]
