I love the new suite of gray Pitt markers with the brush tips. I think there needs to be some black, for contrast. I drew this last night after the Light, Wood and Bronze reception for Linda Hoffman and Sue Salem. I didn’t really feel like drawing, but I didn’t feel like going to bed without having drawn at all either. So I cleaned my kitchen, scored and tore a piece of that new hot press rag paper into smaller rectangles, and commenced.
I spoke with Miranda at the reception. She has an amazing website for StudioMothers. I mentioned that there is this aspect of daily drawing, now that I’ve been doing it for a couple of months, in which I don’t start every day as if I’ve never drawn before. The drawing hand, the hand-eye coordination is already primed and ready to go. And this in only 15 minutes a day. Why didn’t I know this before? Even when I was working regularly in my studio I never drew every day. It’s hard to explain what a powerful practice this is, but I’m going to write it up and try.
