Making a Mark: 10 Tips for How to Sketch People

Katherine Tyrrell, my living, working encyclopedia on art, is working on an instruction manual/book for sketch artists. This is a great post to get you started if you don't already sketch people and some great reminders and ideas if you already sit in airports, hotels, restaurants, etc., with sketchbook in hand.

Making a Mark: 10 Tips for How to Sketch People

When you visit this blog of Katherine's you will find links and more blogs and more information than you can imagine. She has info on pastels, colored pencil, art history, art news, and sooooo much more. Just don't forget to come back here once in a while!

Thanks, Jo. I love Katherine's site, too. And thanks for the links you sent by email tonight. Maybe next year I'll have a self portrait worth entering. I do love the little 9x12 one... but it's not so darned creative as some of the current entries.
And how could we forget to come back here? It's cosy and supportive and full of life here. Mmmm You're the best.

Jo Castillo said...

Thank you, Susan. Does that make you second best? :)

Susan Carlin said...

Yes, indeedy, it does. Hey, how did you get the "Subscribe in a reader" link and icon into your sidebar? I've been looking for just that thing. Come to think of it, I need to ask you all sorts of bloggy type questions! Call me?
or email me your phone number and I'll call you!

Jo Castillo said...

Susan, We will talk. :) But you just join feedburner.com as I recall and paste the code into your layout page.

Valerie, yes, Katherine gives such good advice. Her sketchbook journals/blogs have more info than I can ever absorb.
