Just a couple of the sketches I've been working on this week. I accept a limited number of commissioned sketch projects each month (these start at $99) - inquiries may come to me.
I took a break from the large horse racing painting to do some deskwork today. It's alarming how quickly those sorts of tasks pile up when I am distracted by the easel.
I fielded a number of new inquiries, did some work on my website, started paperwork for taxes, worked on gallery correspondance, and squeezed in sketches and the blocking in of double portrait.
And it's Friday already - how did that happen?
Enjoy your weekend!!
I am asked all the time what sort of advice I have for artists who want to improve. And it's pretty basic advice.
Draw everything you can.
Carry a sketchbook with you, set aside 10 minutes a day just to sketch.
Sketch with different materials, on different surfaces. Experiment with different types of line and color. Play with texture and pattern in your drawings. Make them whimsical. Make them serious.
But just draw.
Because there isn't enough paint in this world to camoflage a poor drawing.
