I decided to set myself the goal of doing one quick sketch a day. As spring is approaching quite fast, I am focusing on tulips. I am using a ballpoint pen because I really wanted a quick sketch and not something I had been working on carefully wih pencil and eraser. Of course there is the possibility of cleaning up the lines in photoshop, but I won’t do that. No eraser, either the traditional one or the digital one.
I am not working with printed out references. I did a google search for “tulips”, went for one photo I liked, opened it and then began to draw. Why should I use ink and paper when I don’t really need to?
