I’m learning how to draw and paint.

These posts began as emails posted to a couple of friends, sent as we shared photos of our latest sketches. We still exchange some sketches by email but it’s more convenient to save them all on a website where they can be a record of discoveries made and techniques learned.

As with any learning process, it’s often the mistakes that are the most instructive. The sketches shown here are more a record of what works and what doesn’t rather than a showcase of finished pieces.
