A Recent Portrait Sketch, and an Upcoming Plein Air Event

9" x 12" Charcoal Pencil on Paper
This is a quick sketch from one of the more recent drawing sessions. All that was needed materially was a charcoal pencil, a kneaded eraser, and a spiral-bound sketchbook - basic stuff. It's fun to work with fancier and more expensive materials - and sometimes I do -  but so much can be done and learned by keeping it simple.

For more about drawing sessions, go to "Labels" on the side bar and click on "sketching" or "drawing."

Plein Air Event

This coming weekend (July 20 and 21) I hope to participate in The Western Wyoming Plein Air competition in Cokeville, Wyoming. The town of Cokeville sits on the banks of the Bear River, surrounded by picturesque ranches and cottonwood stands. Beyond the valley are mountains with evergreens and aspens. There's lots to paint in this scenic area. This will be my third year in this event. For more information go here:
