08-01-12 These were drawn with sienna ink and conté pencil
It's been very humid lately and that makes it problematic to draw with pencil. The paper gets soft and you have to bear down more with the pencil. And, I'm getting a little bored with the pencils anyway… so I've been using ink in my en plein-air drawing. And this burnt sienna ink gives the drawing an old fashioned look. So that's kind of fun too. How interesting!
There's a reason for everything, even when there's no reason or when someone is being unreasonable!
