1st entry for Aug 10, 2013

On the Saturday morning, Tanya was over at the Daniels Spectrum building. These are two 1-minute studies up top, then two 5-minute ones and a 10-minute one at bottom.
All are on 18 x 24" sheets of cartridge paper. I was continuing with an exploration of pre-treated paper - misted with an ink mixture - before drawing.
The top three are done exclusively with with a Pentel brushpen. the lower two are brushpen with warm gray Copic markers.
In the lowest one I experimented with an after-the-fact vignette shape in the background. I like the idea of this, but this one didn't do it for me. Maybe it's vignette or ground line, but not both at once...
