I have still been enjoying my daily sketches and although I am rather behind in uploading them I am onto moleskine #2 – it has certainly become a habit that I am committed to and that seems to be sticking.
The other day, though I ran out of 2b leads for my pencil – disaster! I ‘never’ draw with anything harder than a 2b as I usually love to get a great range of tone and contrast into my work. However, determined not to miss a day I ‘compromised’ with HB leads and I am rather liking the result. The first drawing wasn’t so successful as I was still trying to get a large rang of tones and it just didn’t work. It has forced me to draw in a completely new way (although looking back it is not totally new to me) but I am really loving these more ghostly softer images.
It is also very satisfying to see the collection building up in my flickr set – although what will happen if I live to 90 and am still loading a drawing a day onto flickr!!! Aacht well – I guess I will worry about that when and if the time comes….
