My 2008 Daily Sketching Blog

My Daily Sketching blog, Drawing Everyday / Sketching Everyday will be starting up again in only a few days! I've switched to the blogger format as I think it will be easier for me to update.

 Last week, while googling some images of the Snowshoe Hare, I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a wide selection of my own animal sketches taken from my Drawing Everyday Blog. They got me thinking of how much I enjoy this method of sketching with pencil and watercolor! After perusing them, I decided to add some drawings on quality watercolor paper to my inventory of artwork.


Some Quotes on Drawing:

"What do drawings mean to me? I really don't know. The activity absorbs me. I forget everything else in a way that I don't think happens with any other activity." ~ John Berger 

"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad." ~ Salvador Dali "Make a drawing, begin it again, trace it; begin it again and trace it again." ~ Edgar Degas

Hare on the Slopes "Snow Bunny" ~ 5.5" x 7.5" original watercolor, $149.00 Now available from the Rijks Gallery in Crested Butte Colorado.
