Welcome to The Art of a Sketchbook.
Because I am writing this on Monday, April 23rd and today is my cats 15th birthday I thought I'd share with you some of my many sketches of Casey.
And last but certainly not least is Casey laying on a cushion that was placed on an ice chest. This sketchbook is unlike most of my sketchbooks. Its made of recycled paper that looks like brown paper sack. In this book I usually use charcoal to draw then add some color with pastel chalk, once in a while I will use my Lamy fountain pen to outline, but not as a rule.
Thats it for the sketches this week ... I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Before closing off this blog post on sketching I wanted to share with you an interesting article I read in the (free) weekly on-line subscription of Outdoor Painter newsletter. The article is about Katharine Norris, written by Steve Doherty. Sign up for the free newsletter while you are there visiting this article.
Heres to sketching.
