2nd entry for Jan 15, 2014

At top are three 5-minute studies, a 10-minute after that, two 15-minute ones and a 20-minute at bottom. The top 4 are Pitt pen on 18 x 18" Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
The lower three are dilute india ink in Pentel brushpens on watercolour paper, plus a bit of full-strength brushpen for blacks. I was trying the method in some of these of brushing a lighter gray brush tip over the black one, to get graduating patches of deeper values.
The drawing wasn't flowing effortlessly, and I was having some challenges with absorbency and maintaining crispness.
