After trying out a few different media on the first few pages, I found myself using the soluble graphite for the rest of the book. And developed the aim of filling the entire thing ... which meant I had to "draw like the wind" as we moved around various museums. Coffee shops gave more leisure, but how many coffee cups do you want to draw?
Looking back through the hasty pages, a few of my favourites - sometimes because of the ambience and experience and object, rather than the outcome -
|Wall of hats at Roseleaf pub|
|Wonderful deer skeleton (from behind) at National Museum|
|At a drawing exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery|
|Looking south from the flat, with Edinburgh Castle at centre top|
|That view, for "real"|
|Waiting for the train to leave Waverley Station|
Still digesting these intense experiences. It will be a nice change of pace to sit quietly and contemplate the object and draw it slowly (there's no hurry to fill the large sketchbook!).
