Tuscan Red

By in Portraits, sketches

A couple more sketchbook pages! Pencil used was my Prismacolour “Tuscan Red.” (I think of Star Wars more than Italy here!) Or it could be brown, come to think of it. I’ve sharpened it so much it’s now a numb in a pencil holder! Esi Edugyan has a cool lecture series at the moment on […]

MLK

By in digital, heads, Portraits, women

This is a little late for Martin Luther King Day, but I drew him a couple of years ago, for an article for Coreopsis Journal of Myth & Theatre. It’s called It Can Happen Here, and it’s written by Ron Boyer.

Okay, some more….

I decided to scan a few more. This is sort of an old book, from the beginning of the pandemic. These are $4.00 “Dollarama” sketchbooks, which are great, because they are cheap, and the paper likes watercolour. Brush pen, though, sometimes wicks a bit. These things claim, however to be “acid free paper,” which is […]

New Coloured Pencils

By in color, Coloured Pencils, men, pencil, Portraits, ruttan's place, sketches, women

A generous friend sent me a set of 168 wooden coloured pencils. (Is it “coloured” or “colour”? The last one sounds slightly illiterate.) I’ve taken them out of their packaging, where they were inaccessible, and put them into yogurt containers, where I can reach them and see what I’m drawing with. Some of the pencils […]

Knausgaarding

By in black and white, Book Reviews, pencil, Portraits, sketches

Finishing up the fifth volume so far of Mr. Karl Ove Knausgaard’s series “My Struggle.” My mind is a little blown, but his story stimulates me not to give up on my own journey. My pal is waiting for the final volume, coming out in September, but I will have to wait until she’s finished […]

Sketchbook People

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

  People in the real world fly by, and it’s hard to catch them. So one uses imagination, and skills gained by practice to capture them. Then there’s drawing from a photograph, which is basically analyzing shapes, and not that creative for me. Still, it produces a convincing result, and I learn something in the […]
