Drink Up!

As many of you know, I am an active member of Reddit. Every few months I participate in the Reddit Gift Exchanges. I’ve made it a habit to paint original watercolors for my random match ups. My most recent giftee is an avid home brewer and fan of craft beer. So I painted him this.

Cheers!

The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room is a drawing club that meets at the Noyes Museum on Wednesday nights. There have only been two sessions to date, both focusing on still life and basic drawing refresher exercises. I love where our little group of artists is going and am looking forward to posting more drawings from our meetings.

Everybody now!

Join in sketchbook Saturday!

For over a year, I have been posting a drawing from my sketchbook almost every Saturday. This habit helps motivate me to keep a sketchbook. It also encourages understanding of the fact that not every drawing needs to be a masterpiece. I’ve found, as an artist, sometimes there is more of myself in a quick scribble than in a completed painting.

My goal this year is to involve more people in Sketchbook Saturday. If you should decide to participate, please link to your sketch in the comment section below. If you have a Twitter account, label your weekly sketch as #sketchbooksaturday. I will look at everyone’s sketches and retweet a few a week. It is an ambitious New Years resolution, but one I plan to try. Lets make 2010 more artistic than any year before it!

Maybe this will catch on, maybe it won’t. I plan on keeping up the habit either way. It has improved my art and my enjoyment of life.

Today’s sketch is “Parts of a Party”. Ink on paper.
