1st entry for July 28, 2013

Essa was working over at the Daniels Spectrum drawing session on the Sunday morning. These are all done on 18 x 24" sheets of paper; the top two in bond paper and the lower two on Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The topmost one is done with a Sakura Graphic pen alone, and the lower three are done with a range of broad-tip Copic warm gray markers, plus a Pitt liner pen for some edges.
They are a 1-minute at top, and three 5-minute ones below.
Status update on my Copic fade test: on Aug 4, roughly 3 weeks since I put half of a drawing in a bright (but north-facing) window on July 15, the black swatch on the page is very faintly but perceptibly lighter (maybe 2% difference), but all the warm grays seem unchanged so far. The trial continues.
