I draw from photos. I use watercolor pencils (great invention by the way). Once I am happy - which is never – I just need to stop and move on – once I am ‘done’ with my sketch, I wash the whole drawing with brewed hot coffee. Yup, that’s right, coffee. I watch where the coffee pools. If it gets away from me, I tilt the paper to motivate the liquid to soak in all the right places.
Once the paper is dry, I use ink, watercolors and go back to my pencils to pull out colors, sharpen the fur, hair, and of course enhance the eyes. I love the eyes. Okay I love the noses too.
