New sketchbook, new sketching

20 Jul

My pal gave me a brand new sketchbook for a present the other day. It’s very tiny and has very rough hand-made paper which isn’t suitable for the usual fineline pens I use so I had to thnk how to use it. i decided to spend 10 minutes each day sitting in the window on the landing of uor studio block, sketching the people moving below with a lump of graphite. Challenging but good discipline. You have to be very quick and identify the most important features of the figures – no time to do any details – you have mere seconds.

    You’ve got a very good Pal, to give you such a lovely sketchbook. I’d be afraid to draw in it 🙂
