Yesterday I received in the mail not one Communication Arts Magazine, but four. The four boxes were strapped together and so later in the evening when I cut the strap off, I noticed that the other boxes were addressed to three other places. Luckily, I live walking distance from a Post Office and so it is a good excuse to get out of the house for a walk.
I thought the mailed items would make a good still life drawing, so here they are. In this drawing I wanted to experiment more with my Prismacolor gray tone felt pens. The three pens are 25%, 50% and 75% cool gray tones. I started with the lightest tone, then the mid tone, and finally the darkest tone.
I like how the pens have a broad tip on one side and a fine tip on the other side. I used a broad tip for most of the drawing.
Originally purchased for an architectural drawing class, I have hardly used the pens since. I look forward to using them more.
