New Sketch: At the Tax OfficeSeptember 5, 2015
Well, I did a few tests on that gesso covered mat board I made a couple days ago. I was planning to do a large drawing on it, but discovered it’s not going to work well for me. The surface takes ink just fine, but I was also planning to scratch away areas too. Unfortunately, I realized that the black paper underneath makes it so that when a brighter top coat is lightly scrapped away, it makes that area look darker. That won’t work for me.
Not to worry, I’ll save that surface for a painting at some point later on. I can substitute another surface for that drawing, and will show that in a day or two.
In the meantime, here’s a little sketch I made recently at the local tax office.
