7x10
Pencil on Paper

For years I've posted acrylic portrait painting tutorial. I've never revealed the entire process until now! The part that has been missing is drawing. You can see them in the intro of my videos. Want to know why it's important or how I do it? This video explains.

Pencil on Paper

I know it's been a while but I'M BACK! This is a drawing I did for my video on "Drawing for Painters" I'm approaching drawing like it's a pre-painting. This is a two part series. This first video in about drawing on a grid. Grid drawing is a great way to make super accurate drawings. A lot of super realistic drawings and paintings are made on a grid. You should really check out the video. If you want to follow along check out my Patreon page. There you will find the reference pic on a grid. Let's do this together! Peace
Here's a link to Patreon so you can get the reference pic

The Digital Sketchbook #4

multimedia on multimedia paper

This is different from what I normally post. This work is from my sketchbook. I thought I'd show some of the work that goes into making a painting by showing my sketches.
