The Journey Begins...
True enough. I had gotten into doing stained glass for fun after college, but I really didn't do much in the way of drawing and painting. So, I bought a new sketchbook, dug out my pencils, and figured I'd just doodle and enjoy. That way, I could just play with the materials and not worry about the subject matter.
Pictured here is one of the first pages in the new sketchbook. The doodle started with a number 7-ish grouping of lines that formed the upper right corner of the brick structure, and it grew from there. I had no idea what it would be as I worked through it, but this is how it ended up.
While it's not a perfectly "finished" drawing, it serves as a unique idea for something I could use in the future. And, it turned out to be a great review in creating value with the variety of pencils.
