A couple brush and pen drawings

I was playing with the watercolor and pen drawing practice from last Friday, so I thought I'd share a couple of the resulting images.

This one is my dog, Zeke. I wanted to add a little more detail, but he moved.

This one is my Bad Hair Day self-portrait. I really don't look that somber most of the time.

April is my month to post the theme for the Sketchbook Challenge, so don't forget to look for it on Friday. I will copy the post on this blog next week, as Friday this week is another drawing practice tutorial.

I've just put my FIRST ONLINE WORKSHOP up on my web site, Unlocking the Secrets of Color. It is open for registration now, and begins May 4. It consists of six sessions, one per week, and I expect we'll have a blast! The next workshops to appear online will be Scribble Collage and a Drawing Practice workshop (similar to what you've seen in my Friday blog series, but much more fleshed out). Please e-mail me or post comments if you have suggestions or requests for online workshops.


  1. I LOVE this! I'm generally a lurker, but you have inspired me to participate. I'm such a realist that this is a great way to get me to loosen up and create some artwork that is more contemporary and current. Thanks for the nudge!

  2. I've been enjoying the Friday drawing posts so I'm looking forward to your April theme in The Sketchbook challenge. I love how you use color!


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
