Day 11 Landscape Values
View of my backyard Toned Tan Sketch Paper, Pencil, Charcoal, Pastel 9 x 12 in.
What I Learned
Strathmore Toned Tan Sketch Paper is very smooth – I wanted something with a little more tooth.
I tried White Compressed Charcoal and a White Derwent Inktense Pencil and I really disliked how it felt on the paper. I felt like I had to press really hard to make a mark and it felt scratchy.
What I’ll Try Tomorrow
I need to find some other drawing media to use on this surface. The charcoal and pencil frustrated me. I think I’ll try markers and ink next.
I’ll also try drawing a border around the page to frame the drawing.
