My first exercises here, trying continuous line exercise. I used a black col-erase pencil but I find them too light for me. I shall look for another tool. On my screen the scan looks a bit blue.
First one is playing with continuous line on printer paper; future practice should also work on variable lines more.
Second sketch is in my Hahnemuhle journal. The paper is tough, but soft. The pencil dug in too much and only left a pale tone for me. Based on Matt’s photo of museum statue. Focusing on the continuous line technique, could have put a bit more hip in there I think. Perhaps I will try this one again with other materials.
