Here’s the next interview with the contributors to my new book An Illustrated Journey: Inspiration From the Private Art Journals of Traveling Artists, Illustrators and Designers
Interview continues here….
Richard Sheppard is a longtime illustrator but only started drawing on location about three years ago. I love his work and his interesting color palette.
Richard shares a lot more in my book. Here’s an excerpt:
“But upon arriving in Ireland, I found that sketching from photographs didn’t prepare me for anything other than sketching from photographs. I was too self-conscious to draw in public and ended up taking photographs the entire time. I kept telling myself that I could paint from the photographs when I returned home. It never happened. There is no substitute for learning to draw from life, out-of-doors. You can’t fake it.…” (continued)
Please don’t forget to check out Richard’s work.

I love the interview. Thank you for sharing yourself and your wonderful work, Rchard.
I love his work! So glad to hear the interview and see his sketches.
I’ve really been enjoying these interviews! All of the artists are so inspiring, and I especially like the peeks we have been getting in their sketchbooks. I found Richard’s sketchbook particularly inspiring because it seems like everything is “grist for the mill”. I doubt I would have taken a flat bike tire as an opportunity for a sketch!
