Jack will be 13 tomorrow. He's thrilled as you can see here! We're celebrating with walks and treats and a swim...like almost every other day.
I'm painting a series of skyscapes and charcoal sketches really get me limbered-up for the range of values needed. Artist Laurel Daniel is exceptional in capturing the subtleties and contrasts in her landscapes.

Completed sketch of Wiseguy. What a difference with a darker background. Seeing the shuffling back and forth of foreground to background when altering the values never ceases to amaze and amuse me.
Will be doing more.

6" x 9" charcoal sketch
Either I will go back into this sketch of Wiseguy or start another tomorrow as I wanted to reveil as much of his features with as little light as possible. Handsome soul.
