In my continued quest to use up the supplies I already have, my dailies – for the past month or so, have mostly been in one of my toned sketchbooks.
So they’ve been mostly sketched, inked…maybe a touch-up with white colored pencil or gel pen. Or, on the rare occasion, maybe an actual marker.
I find stickers and washi tape look particularly good on toned paper!
Other than trying to fill up these sketchbooks (I maaaaaay have a few I’ve bought compulsively during sales)…let’s just say some of my markers have been drying up…
I’ve definitely been enjoying just drawing with pencil and ink – and the toned paper gives it a nice antique-y look. It also forces me to vary line weights, so there’s that – there’s always room to learn and try something new.
Well, sure, I could stock up on these markers – but, again, I want to stay the course on this quest. Two more toned sketchbooks to go!
And I still have my watercolors, so color in my drawings are still in the picture.
