Back to the old red sketchbook with crummy wood pulp paper.

Four variations of the top of Tom's Dresser

Another sketch from early morning pillow position.  I wanted to see how much ink bleed the refillable marker pen would cause on the yellowed pulp paper.  I have about fifteen more pages to go in this treasured sketchbook.  As I opened it this morning, the binding broke.  It clearly is ready for retirement.

I’ve ordered an empty Ciao Copic Marker to try filling with ink, maybe mixing Noodler’s ink with Copic Ink for fast drying when sketching while walking.  I like the brush-shaped tip of the Ciao Marker better than the wedge shape tip of the Preppy refillable marker.

Drawing: Preppy refillable marker filled with Noodler’s walnut ink.
