Entry for Jan 13, 2015

On the Tuesday night I was drawing Richard and Paolo together at Richard's place. This is a 25-minute study with a mix of diluted inks applied with brushpens onto a 14 x 17" sheet of Strathmore Bristol paper.
The two people together here had a very nice feeling of intimacy, which I felt was better served by a more partial description, rather than complete figures.
The slick surface of the bristol really keeps the inks on the surface, and the resultant lack of absorbency helps the ink flow more steadily and not have the brush dry out. that allowed for building up a broad range of values quickly
