In the Meantime..

Being in the studio, and fiddling with supplies, I just couldn't pass it up.   Started the stencil work and underpainting yesterday with the sketch in of the raven, then finished it today.  Lots of fun, more fun then organizing..snicker.

Learning

Stay tuned, fought through this last few weeks with bronchitis
(just about every time I get a cold or virus, it turns into that one) -
in the meantime I've been getting the studio ready for a space to do some online learning.
I have enrolled in a daily gesture drawing/mentoring class with Tonja Sell and TWO sketchbook classes - one with Danny Gregory and Koosje Koene - Sketchbook Skool, one with Sketchbook Revival.
Whoo - lots to do, lots to practice and lots to learn!  My idea of FUN!
My sketching has gone by the wayside and I feel that in order to improve -
one must be in the mode of practice, thereby, seeing through sketching.
 I most always benefit from online exposure to techniques, other artists,
ideas and pacing learning on my own time and schedule.
How about you?
