I went to the AKC all-breed dog show this morning to sketch dogs. They were moving…that’s really an excuse for not practicing more. They were hard! The cute one is the Petit Basset Griffon Vandeen, or PBGV, a darling, extroverted hound.
A gift to you from you (or someone else?) The Refresher Course, November 28, 29, 30 at my home studio will be a review and will have plenty of drawing using the Pilot pen, the Micron and pencil. Email or phone for reservations. Space is limited. It will get you going again! Use it every time you’re bored over the Holidays! ( I think “at a concert, watching football, waiting for anyone!”)
Also, if you’re in Tucson and would like to go out with a group, Martha Pankratz (of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild) leads a plein air paint-sketch-out every Tuesday morning locally. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the weekly announcement. The sketch of the Catalinas was done from Columbus Park on the west side with the group. I think the park is boring, but it’s a great place to practice doing mountains. Going with the group forces practicing on what’s there. It’s the old discipline thing we all hate!
Have a delightful, restful Thanksgiving break!!!
