I went to the museum this morning and decided to draw a short column piece featuring three woman. I didn’t have my pencil case with me so I decided to do it in my sketchbook (10×7), using my Namiki Falcon. This is one time when I wished for larger paper as it was hard to capture all the detail in what is roughly an 8″ high sketch. But it was a bundle of fun to do.
Addendum: I was playing around last night and added just a hint of color to this sketch. I think it improved it somewhat, mostly by removing some of the starkness of the black on white. I didn’t want to turn it into a color sketch but now I’m wondering what it would look like if I increased the tonal variation even more. What do you think?
