Do you know the thrill of new art supplies? In other aspects I’m quite reasonable consumer but when it comes to art supplies I could have all the different tools in the world. Especially new sketchbooks excite me so much – just think about those empty pages waiting to be drawn on. Last week I followed my urge and bought this new brown sketchbook. Yesterday I opened it and filled the first page with this drawing: Girl Sitting On a Sofa. I loved drawing on the brown paper. It gave me even more options to use shadows (black) and light (white) since the paper is in the mid tone. You can see the pencils I used – pencil, color pencils, black marker and correction marker – in the last photograph taken with my phone. What do you think? Have you tried brown paper yourself?
