8.4 X 11 Pen & Ink Long Sketch with Soft Pastels on #140 Strathmore Water Color Paper: These guys were all over us for a ride as soon as we stepped off the bus.


egypt, donkey, rider

I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.

    I love how you have turned a mere sketch into a delightfuly present work of art.

  • Thanks, it helped a lot to be home with my sketches and Dawn’s photos. There we a lot of details I just had to leave out of the 1st quick sketch. I still intend to paint this one quite large, if I can only get a good face on him.

    Wonderful illustration, Randy … a very special expression and feeling you have captured here in the rider and the donkey.

  • Thanks Pam. I just started on an 18X24 acrylic painting of this rider today.
