Sketchbook Ink

KEEP AN EYE ON THE PREVIOUS POST- IT'S AN IMPORTANT ISSUE!

But in the meantime:

I think sketching is just as important as finishing a painting. Keeping loose and experimenting with technique, media, speed and ideas helps you grow. These are some sketches from my recent sketchbook- some took up to 30 minutes, others less than 10 seconds. I think quick-sketching shows a lot of life; something often lost if you over-work a piece. (for some reason I LOVE those old victorian/edwardian photographs)


I just put these, along with a few more sketches, on my website in the sketchbook section.

You´re absolutely righ Joe sketching is an important way to develop as an artist. Hows the thing with your Abe Lincoln?

Cool stuff, man.
Extremely lame about being ripped off! Careful using the word "artist" with someone willing to do that.
