One of the suggestions from Sketchbook Skool was to experiment with tinted paper. I’d done a few drawings before using white and dark pencil on colored backgrounds, and I like them, but hadn’t really understood the full potential. I bought a new gray sketchbook, pulled up a photo from an acquaintance, and spent a delightful couple of hours playing and smudging and learning. Just one little smick of white in the wrong place turns a sparkling eye into a zombie eye socket… but apart from that minor frustration, I’m still having way too much fun with my online class. The more I learn, the more there is ahead still to learn… funny how that works.
