Well, I finally got the chance to work with the new Cretacolor Nero leads (Soft) and I have to say — I’m very pleased.
They still aren’t quite as dark as a Conte, but they’re noticeably darker than the medium leads.
My warmup for the day. I added a vertical superimposed line to my practice.
And some gestures for the day. My son came to the cabin with me, so I was a bit distracted, but I’m happy with the gestures on the bottom!
Since today was errand day, I really didn’t have much time to focus on art today, which…sucks. BUT, I still got some drawing time in, I made some progress on web projects (including minor tweaks to the joshuagraphic.com site) and I managed to get a lot of studying done today.
All things considered…not a bad day at all. And my son came to the cabin with me (again). I love it when my kids get to watch me work on something I’m passionate about, even if they distract me. LoL
What went well?
- Drawing during a busy, busy day.
- My son coming to the cabin with me to draw.
- Updating the design for my daily art archive.
What needs work?
- Distraction management.
- Increasing art time.
What did I learn?
Having time to focus alone always works better than splitting my focus between my family and my work, but sometimes it’s alright to blend the two — especially if my family is having fun!
