Mixing paint and getting ready

I took some time from my lazy sofa day yesterday to gear up for my portrait practice by mix a flesh tone and filling an empty water brush with it. Trying to figure out how to use minimal lines to draw a portrait and use paint for shadows and definition. Stay tuned..

January 1-figure sketching

One big focus of mine lately has been to improve my people sketch. Both figures and portraits. So I spent time today using 30 second posematics and pose generator, a twig and ink as well as a pocket brush pen. 
What a great way to ring in the new year!!

2014 review


I have been so fortunate to have another wonderful year. Below are 12 sketches, one from each month. Some have already been posted some not. 
Each a moment I am grateful for and am more grateful that I started drawing. 
It's enabled me to save moments, meet new people, travel and have life where I am more present in the world than I was before I started. 
Thanks to everyone who has visited, commented and supported me. It is much appreciated and the reason I keep posting!!!
I wish you all a creative, happy and healthy New Year!
