New Drawing Started: Roofers Nextdoor

August 13, 2014


I spent the last few days driving around looking for ideas for something to draw, and woke up this morning to the hammering of roofers next door. Sometimes the work comes to you.


I’m drawing this on Wallis Sanded Paper, which is a very rough surface, and makes an interesting texture. You can see the lines better in the closeup below. I’m using a 5H lead which draws very dark on this surface, but keeps a sharp point longer than softer leads.
