Dis-Comfort Zone

I’m trying to get away from digital drawing on my Samsung Galaxy Note for a while because I think it’s become my new comfort zone, taking over from my Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens. I soaked a piece of natural sponge in some dilute Indian ink and scrubbed it over quite a few of the pages of my little Khadi handmade paper sketchbook; it’s heavily textured and the ink pooled in different places across the pages, giving me some interesting patterns and tones to work over. I took it down for a walk on the edge of the beach earlier this evening with some carbon sticks and chalk and quickly sketched between some trees, working with the shapes and textures already on the page. It’s very quick and impressionistic, as far from my comfort zone as it’s possible to be. My dis-comfort zone. It will be good for me.
