I love to draw and sketch, and have kept sketchbooks for years! This blog is strictly for my sketches past and present...There is nothing quite like finishing a sketchbook and look back through it and remember all the fun things that I got to sketch! Or filling a sketchbook from a trip. Or just sharing your sketchbooks. It is like your own visual diary. If you are interested in getting updates, to to the right side bar and add your email address. Please contact me if you have any questions.
A Lot of sketches to post! I was so happy to get to go to a workshop in Dallas with the great sketcher James Richards. It was an awesome experience. He is such a gentleman and so kind. His wife Pati is just as great as he is. I am blessed to get to have met them both, and learn from him.
We sketched inside and outside on location. Painting out is my favorite! I am posting a photo of the three of us, and I have a black eye from an eye procedure. My Dr. didn't even apologize for it.
I sketched while waiting for the shuttle as well as at the airport. It was a lot of fun. It is true, nobody notices what you are doing!
Nancy Standlee and Suzanne ONeill all stayed together. Was a lot of fun!
Last week some of my art friends and I went to the cowboy symposium. Loved seeing all the stuff they used to use back in the pioneer days. It is done in a moleskin watercolor sketchbook.
And another bronc rider, using the toned paper and gouache..
For some reason is hard to keep up. I am still trying to sketch but haven't been as successful! A lot going on lately. I am having a workshop this next week end, and have been working on getting new pieces for a show in Ft.Worth, TX. I am just going to try to catch up. It may take two posts!
These are on toned paper using watercolor and gouache, as well as some other sketches.
