Same day as below, this time picking on Copley. A preoccupation with comics and cartooning over the years have nudged away my early fine arts background. I still approach pencil drawings as though I'm using an inking tool. When using graphite, or the black Prismacolors I usually draw with, a wide range of effects are available. Yet I approach a drawing in large part as though I was working in ink; strokes of various sizes instead of delicate blends with the edge of the tool. I'm not complaining, it's just an observation. It does make me wish I'd sat down with a jar of ink since I was going to approach drawing that way in the first place. I think I'm going upstairs to do that right now!
