  1. Would you like to check out my sketches at swissknife.wordpress.com? As you are an artist I’d love to have your opinion.

  2. We call that mix media. Great. I too do that. There’s another water color technique that I use. I take a picture, wet the sheet, and quickly capture the landscape in patches. Like a mountain patch, a quick tree bark, green patch, sky a patch indicating a rooftop and a house and on and on. I wait for it to dry and THEN sketch out the details on the patches. What initially looks like an idiotic abstract suddenly becomes a nice landscape. Tried it?

    • I have not tried that and it sounds like it is a nice “thinking backwards” trick. 🙂 I often like to do the reverse. Sketch out the dark lines and let the subject take shape and then add color details. I know it is called mixed media BTW…I like listing the tools used so people might get inspired to mix it up. 😛 Thanks for your suggestions. *hug*

  3. Who’s Thomas? Live sketch of a terrier? Color pencils? Beautiful. Furry strokes are nice. Can feel the depth of fur.
