MEDIUM: A4 sketchpad white + black biro pen
DESCRIPTION: This was a copy of a skull being seen as a part of another picture which I found inside of the National Gallery.
On my visit to the National Gallery, I had taken the precaution to bring along with me 2 sketchbooks/and, not just 1…but 3 x black biro pens; all of which ink did eventually run out completely after my copying so much!
At that point, I found I had no other choice left open to me…but to resort to using pencil, instead; which really did NOT work as the lines showed up far too faintly…especially, when being juxtaposed against thick black ink; so, then, I knew it was time to quit drawing…and, just simply look.
