Inside my Sketchbook

Posted by on July 16, 2015 in recent blog posts | 0 comments

Just about everywhere I go, my sketch book goes with me. I use it for making quick studies of figures and faces and sometimes when I have the time I scribble down small concept compositional ideas that can help with planing when it comes to later producing a painting. Here are a few recent studies from my latest sketch book. On average I probably spend only a few minutes on each. it can be as quick as 10 seconds but no longer than 5 minutes.

4 or 5 minute quick study of my fellow Artist and friend Kees Putnam. This was done after dinner and the back-light catching the side of his face caught my interest.
