Great drawing tonight once I got into it. The one and two minutes I like, the five minutes, not so much. The tens and twenties and beyond worked better. I realized last time that newsprint pretty much sucks, so I went out and bought better quality paper. But Canson Biggie Sketch has no tooth to it, so it’s not as awesome as I hoped. Next time I’m sticking with Strathmore sketch paper – it costs more and there are fewer sheets but it is higher quality material.

I also used more than charcoal this time around – decided to experiment with pencil and colored pencil and charcoal tonight. I think the charcoal drawings came out the best. Next time I’m trying out those pastels Granddad gave me.
