I couldn't resist trying out my new sketchbook today. Since I dedicated my last sketchbook to pen and ink, for this next one I will only draw with pencil. Sometimes I like putting constraints on how I approach my art. It takes a lot of discipline to practice restraint. I find it results in discovering different nuances of the medium, technique, style, etc. that I am using. I am eager to see what discoveries will be found in this next sketchbook.
To start off, I drew my dog Ruby who likes to lay close to me as I draw. What a great subject!
Drawn with a 0.9mm mechanical pencil.
