Lest You Think I Have Given Up Drawing
Here are some cosmos from a reference photo on WetCanvas. (Thanks to Stephie20).
I must say it was lovely to grab my pencil, relax and let it flow tonight.
This was done in my cachet studio blank book. I bought it on vacation as a replacement for the one I donated to the airline trash bin. I don't like the paper in it at all. I would much prefer a slicker paper with less texture. Not many more pages. Once it's finished I may have to treat myself to another Moleskine.
I've recently started reading Elements of Drawing by John Rushkin. I've known about the book for a long time, but never felt that I would understand enough to get much out of it. Having seen a new edition with illustrations in it, I decided to take the plunge. How glad I am that I did! I'll save my thoughts for a proper review later, but if you've ever wondered about Rushkin's book, it is definitely worth the read and definitely understandable.
