In an attempt to improve my art, I’m trying to draw at least one thing from life every single day. I too often fall into the terrible habit of copying things from two-dimensional images. During a break today, a co-worker so nicely co-operated with me by sleeping right in my line of vision…
For a change, my nearsighted-ness came in handy. I don’t have to squint to see the values (lights and darks) – I just look over the top of my glasses. *grin*
Ink: black waterproof indian-ink Faber-Castell PITT (F) pen first (no rough draft in pencil – you can tell by the wrongly-sized hat, among other things)
Watercolours: Winsor & Newton Cotman (burnt sienna, ivory black, burnt umber, yellow ochre), Grumbacher’s (indigo hue).
Paper: Neenah’s Paper Classic Linen (Solar White), though I should’ve probably used watercolour paper instead. Well, maybe tomorrow.
