New Skillshare Class Released!

I have just released my latest Skillshare class. It was recorded in 2020 and I was only now able to finish editing and publishing it. In it, students will learn drawing and painting techniques to illustrate various beverages. These are valuable still-life skills that will be applicable to rendering many different subject matter.

If you’re interested in watching the introductions to my other Skillshare classes, head over to my YouTube channel and click on the Skillshare playlist. I wholeheartedly enjoy taking classes on Skillshare. I have been a member for a few years now and I have taken classes on video editing, how-to make a Skillshare class, marketing, building a YouTube channel, business, visual art, and more. If you sign up for Skillshare using my dedicated LINK I will get a portion of your first payment. (The first month is free so you can see if you like the platform and find out all it has to offer.) While this link takes you to my teacher profile, from there you can explore various subjects like watercolor and see how many other amazing classes there are as well.

Thank you for your interest and support in my painting and teaching! I appreciate every one of you. Please share this with whoever you think might be interested!

Day 13 of the Drawing Challenge

Day 13 of the drawing challenge calls for a comic. This drawing challenge has held me up for a few days. I adore comics but am never quite sure how to cram the stories I want to tell into a small comic panel. I get caught in one depiction of a human and end up – much later – with one nice drawing of a character, unable (or unwilling?) to reproduce them the seven more times I’d need to.

So… here is the kind of comic I can produce. You should be able to click on the image to see it a bit larger.

Sketchbook Sunday

I’m obsessed with interiors right now. I don’t know where this subject is going but continue to follow my impulses and make sketches of any space that strikes my fancy. Quite – QUITE – often I invent a portion of the space, or the entire thing.

… and yes, that is a puzzle I am working on in the upper right corner of the photograph 🙂
