Demo sketches made while thinking through a student’s photo reference in our watercolor faces and figures class.
Mixing colors, thinking of skin for our portrait/figures class today.

Sitting in bed next to my son as we read our books I thought to myself something along the lines of “I don’t have time to draw anything” but also “even a few minutes would be worth while”.
Then I noticed that there was a pencil in my hand (I like to write in my books) and space on the book mark. (Incidentally, the stuffed Corgi appears larger than it is in life.)
Another dog portrait.
