Danny Gregory


Here is a pen with watercolor drawing that I was inspired by Danny Gregory to do. He is an amazing artist and author. I read his book, Creative License, The: Giving Yourself Permission to Be The Artist You Truly Are in which he talks about not worrying about making mistakes in art. He challenges you to draw directly in pen without erasing or going over your mistakes. You'd be amazed how many times while drawing this I just wanted to just start over again due to all of the mistakes I could see. It was a great learning tool. The drawing is of my Dad's old pipe stuff and a great book that I highly recommend, The Cowboy and the Cossack.

Some people have let me know that they really aren't sure how to leave a comment. Just click the comments link at the bottom of whatever post you want to add a comment to (even better you can right click on the comments link and pick "Open in New Window" so the music keeps playing...that is if you like the music) and in the box titled "Leave Your Comment", you would...um...leave your comment. Then all you have to do is type that annoying word verification thingy (it's there to fend off spam) in, choose your identity and push the Publish button.

These are great! I used to draw Snoopy all the time, that's how I learned to draw, copying Charles Schultz. :)
