I'm enjoying a marker phase! I like to challenge myself with new mediums every few months and recently invested in a professional set of ChartPak AD markers (the flesh tone kit). They're quite the challenge, but I'm definitely up for it. I'm especially interested in how markers react to layering (so different from paint or pencil!).
I find the female form to be so moving. In fact, as soon as I started drawing and painting nude figures, I wondered why anyone would paint anything else.
My studio is in the East End of Pittsburgh. I paint and draw, most mornings, in my bright sunroom (to the quiet sounds of morning news, the constant interruption of my nosy cats, and with steaming cups of hot coffee).
