Sketch Book Series: Faces (December 2011)

I don’t remember the point of this practice exercise. It couldn’t have been faces exclusively since two are hidden. Maybe it was a combination face practice and composition design. I was getting better at facial proportions in this sketch.

Sketch Book Series: Cat, Self Grooming (May 2011)

Instead of using a permanent-ink pen in this sketch I used one with water-soluble ink. I doused a bit of water on the furry bits of the cat (depicted in the drawing) to get the wash effect.

Sketch Book Series: Atrium (April 2011)

I used pencil for shading in this sketch. I don’t recall the issues I had while drawing this scene, but ten years after, I see that the large shadow on the back building would have taken a careful hand with pen and ink to render. I probably thought it was easier to shade with pencil.
