Wet Twilight Sketching


Sometimes it's nice to get back to basics, put away all the groovy drawing materials and just sketch with what you've got.
This drawing was completed with a €2 set of acrylics from the euro discount store (including shaggy excuse for a brush), some ice pop sticks and pieces of cardboard torn from a coffee carton. The only sop to proper drawing equipment was a black felt tip pen I had on me.
It ain't sophisticated, but somehow it's exactly what sketching is supposed to be - fast, impressionistic and less than perfect.

It's great. Shows what a great artist you are to get such good results with awful materials!

Thanks for the comments Zimmii and Sue,
Must get my €2 euro worth so I'll drag out the acrylics during the week. The shaggy brush though, I'm afraid has to go!
