I don't remember the last time I used a 2B pencil or the last time I sat in front of my desk to complete a sketch. I tried to sketch one of my favourite actresses two nights ago and my final sketch looked nothing like her and so I decided to choose subjects that I didn't know of to get rid of a few preconceptions of their facial features etc. Today I decided to try sketching for 30 minutes. It was a fun challenge as I was frantically sketching- not knowing whether to work on detail or tonal qualities. It was just too tempting to keep sketching after 30 minutes so it became a 45 minute sketch to a 60 minute sketch.
