My New Sketchbook

This drawing was done in the
subway. I was able to get the
drawing down very quickly
using these materials.
I bought a new sketchbook. It has toned paper so I can play with opaque white or prisma color pencils using the tone of the paper as a value. Sometimes when I sketched people in the subway I would tint a number of pages the night before so that I can use color pencils to draw with. The color of the tint was usually a warm color that I would use as a middle value. I was able to lay down the drawing a lot faster and think more about the large mass’ of light and dark.
