John A. Kurtz's sketchbook

These sketchbook pages are those of John A. Kurtz

I am a doodler who does not know much about painting. So I am extremely intimidated with the thought of painting my 584 mm by 200 mm (plus 5 mm bleed) line drawing. I found out about John A. Kurtz paintings from Thaneeya McArdle's web site. She interviewed him and I learned that he sorts out his color schemes with colored pencils before moving on to creating large acrylic paintings. If that technique works for accomplished artists like Kurtz, I will implement it into my routine. So, it may be a few weeks before I will have completed the painting but as soon as it is complete I will share it with you.
