Lots and Lots of Sketches
Some sketches out of my sketchbook. Most of these are just some random doodles I have toyed with. Some are from my living room, some from my head. I enjoy just sketching. It is very relaxing and helps me plant seeds for later. Most of these doodles will never become a finished product.
Sketching is a way of forcing observation. Many times I will catch myself overlooking the obvious when I paint. My observation skills get lazy while I am thinking of color, value and palette choices. I become so involved in how to get the paint on the surface that I forget what the form is doing.

Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
