Depth, Drama, and Mark-Making

I am just back from a three-week trip to India and will post sketches from my travels soon. But before that, here are two demo sketches from an online workshop I held this weekend that explored mark-making techniques. Chickens are just so much fun to sketch!

And here is the second piece we created, using a mix of watercolor, pen & ink, and water-soluble pencils. (plus a little gouache for those final highlights)

These one-off online workshops are always kinda fun: they’re about 2 hours long and are recorded so if you missed the live version you could always watch the recording and then share your work with me later for feedback. If you missed hearing about this one, it might be because you aren’t signed up for my newsletter where I announce them first? You can remedy that right now here:

    Looking at your sketches I realize that I don’t handle the outer edges of my sketches very skillfully. I love the yours float on the page so naturally.
