Loosening up once again
For a couple weeks I’ve been trying fountain pens, but I really haven’t get used to them. I feel much tighter, thinking too much about holding the pen in such a way that it doesn’t skip.
Today I got out an 8B Kohinoor Progresso woodless pencil and a Prismacolor Sanguine pencil while having lunch at a nearby Subway. I hadn’t sketched that much in a while, so sketched the customers while in line waiting for their sandwiches.
I really liked how both felt on my Strathmore Windpower sketchbook; a bit messy because of the 8B, but I felt quick and loose. I like sketching here, lots of unsuspecting subjects pretty still for a couple minutes.
