My commitment to daily drawing is regularly tested late evening. ‘It’s 10pm, I haven’t managed a sketch yet, what could I draw?’ Favourite models include a glass of water, my left hand, a model skull, or figures on TV; this time it was my glasses.
(I love the way pencil compliments Lexington grey ink, producing a soft monochrome)
‘B’ pencil, water brush with Lexington grey ink, A6 – 5 minutes
It really is a lovely monochrome.Nice balance…
I’m impressed by your commitment to daily drawing. I have that commitment too, but I sometimes don’t make it. This is such a simple yet beautiful sketch. Does this mean you sketched it without wearing your glasses??
Thanks Tina, luckily I’m short-sighted! Taking off my glasses is always handy for a ‘soft focus’ view when trying to see overall tones etc in a scene. Ed
