Example text

When sketching, I try to be very conscious about the feeling of the piece and what part or parts I have to exaggerate in order to get the feeling that I am after. When I sketch, I feel very open and relaxed, as I am not trying to do a finished or important drawing. It's as if I'm just thinking about a form and not trying to create one. The sketch is free to do what it wants, and I feel no need to exert control over it. I like the fluidity and freedom of sketching as it allows me to wander through the ideas in my mind.

Drawing is hard for me. I've been drawing for fifty years and I still struggle. When I draw a lot, I become more fluent, but then it begins to slip away. I should draw more. Douglas Fryer Fryer developed his love of landscape while living in rural Vermont, California and presently in the farmland and mountains of central Utah. He paints primarily in oils but enjoys watercolor, printmaking and digital mediums as well. Fryer has taught fine art and illustration at several universities and art schools, including his alma mater, Brigham Young University, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and he has illustrated for numerous clients in publishing and advertising.

Building paintings is different from sketching, and a lot of times I'm building large oils. I like to go outdoors for my sketching. It gives me a break from the other attitudes that are necessary for creating full-blown paintings. It's playful for me; it's fun. When sketching, I don't care about money or exhibitions or anything like that. I'm usually outdoors with pastels or watercolor, and I have my pencils and charcoal, in case after a while I'm tired of dealing with color. I don't take my oils outdoors.
