50 Shades?

2 Jan

50 shades

When I first heard there was a book called “50 Shades Of Grey” I thought it was about British weather. It sounds like a typical drizzly day in Swansea Bay. Like today. Here’s a few shades of grey.

I drew this in my 15cm square hand-made Khadi sketchbook, prepared with a grey wash of Indian ink, applied with a natural sponge. I closed the book immediately and left it to dry and the wash went speckled, which is quite nice. I drew with compressed charcoal, black and white conte crayon and white oil pastel.
