My new grey sketchbook

Recently I got this new Strathmore toned grey hardbound journal. I have tested it with Faber Castell Pitt Brush Markers and Prismacolor Color pencils. And it responded so well to both the mediums.

I personally love the way white pops out on this background. It just makes every drawing look more close to reality as compared to a plain white background. I love working on it with the colored pencils now.

Here is my first colored pencil drawing of my breakfast a few days back:


The self portrait that I recently drew surprised me by how much I was able to achieve without having to consume the whole of my skin tone color pencil!


Here are some of my initial drawings in the Metropolitan Museum in New York with my fellow Sketchbook Skoolers and our faculty Mr. Tommy Kane

Its safe to say that I will be doing much more sketching in this sketchbook in the days to come! 🙂
