The Scream Online
A Great Day.....
.....ends even better when you find out you've been published in an international online magazine for the arts, the SCREAM online. Despite the fact I knew it was coming sometime it took me by complete surprise. Check it out HERE. Thanks, 'Scream'!
Marker Drawing, ever since the day I accidentally 'discovered' it, has just been a fun activity. Pretty soon it led to a handout, then some workshops, then a longer class handout....and then a book which you can find a link to in the above menu.
Many artists use markers for quick sketches to study compositional ideas, and I do also. But the pieces can go beyond that into sketching on toned paper, recording color notes, and even into printmaking in the form of monotypes and etchings. I highly recommend it as a way to study painting without hauling around a lot of brushes and paint.
Here is one I did recently in Italy which uses white gouache to help separate values. Give it a try. If you are in the area I will be having another Marker Workshop in March 2015. It usually fills up. Find out about it at the Winslow Art Center, HERE.
