Fritz Nobis Rose Sketch

I’m still recovering from a cold, so just the thought of getting out my art supplies is exhausting. Seriously! Who would have thought that grabbing out some brushes, pans, palettes, water bottles… the list goes on and then I just want to sleep… It is a bad cold.

Since I really enjoyed doing my earlier pen and ink sketch, and it uses so few materials (literally a pen and paper), I decided I would focus on another practice sketch. There is much less stress in the concept of a sketch – no finished artwork piece that will be judged; in fact if I hate it I can just scrunch up the bit of paper and throw it straight into the bin. It’s kind of relaxing and exhilarating.
