When I revisited my old sketch books and looked over these sketches I drew in the '90's, I discovered that it's been waaayyyy to long since my last piece of art was done in pencil, and that I really miss the process. The rough sketching, the blending, creating balance, colour, tone and value.... by just using one tool with various degrees of light and dark. It's absolutely amazing the result you can achieve by using this simple tool. I have decided to go back to the basics , sharpen up my pencils, grab my favourite blending stumps and eraser ( for highlights not mistakes.... ) and open up a fresh page in my sketch book. Who's with me ?
