A Bootkamp assignment gave me the motivation to revisit this colonial building on my way to work. Usually tile work is not found on the exterior walls of a building. Needless to say, this was a building that required attention to detail. This started with a fast sketch in watercolors, then pen work, and finally some coloured pencils. Basta!
We just finished a week of writing assignments, fooling around with scripts at the Sketchbook Skool Bootkamp. Stretching some unused muscles--this is not something I would ordinarily play with, but it was interesting. I wrote Robert Frost's poem, "Fire and Ice," with a dip pen, which was fairly out of control...and therefore exciting. I added a "take-a-line-for-a-walk" and Prismacolor pencils. I rather liked the lines of the dip pen--think I'll play with it some more.
