Pencil and CharcoalI'm just trying to get the pencil moving again - playing around with small house shapes and negative areas.
I'm not crazy about the way pencil and charcoal handle on newsprint, but I thought I'd try to fill up a large sheet with small sketches.
I feel a little rusty after a few days of no drawing or painting, but I'm ready to get at it. Small drawings like these help to jump start the process - kind of like musicians playing the scales. Little pencil marks can lead to large paintings.
