The Weekly Sketch: 2.5.2014

I have been nursing a bit of a cold… and since my studio temperature can hover at 55 degrees (really!) during the coldest days of winter, I have been resisting the urge to busy myself at the felting table until I am 100%.  In the meantime, I continue my sketch process (along with various internet-related tasks).  This recent batch of sketches are all in ink, all slightly toned with chalk.  Feeling for the groove – ink is demanding but inviting; still, I cannot resist overlaying it with the tone and loose, almost gestural mark from chalk.  The paper is part of a cheap, acid-free, mixed-media sketch pad/98 lb, mildly toothy.  Probably need to graduate to better paper….I have acquired some and it is patiently waiting for me to “grow up.”
