drawing with pen
I know of many artists who sketch before deciding on a painting. If you ever meet up with Tim Horn ask to see his sketches. Peggi Kroll Roberts has beautiful contour drawings of figures. Their studies are fantastic. I am trying to get into better habits and one of them is sketching. Drawing is a very basic skill that is an essential element to a painting. I have heard many critiques on paintings that point to an incorrect drawing. I can tell what I am going to need to work on here!
