car park treecushionsI like this quote from Robert Crumb, which Danny Gregory included in a recent piece on pen and ink work in his Everyday Matters weblog:

'Drawing is just an excuse to crosshatch'

In the very brief intervals I managed to give myself drawing today I certainly enjoyed building up the hatching and crosshatching on the cushions of on our sofa.

This morning, as I waited in the car by the do-it-yourself store I saw a row of terraced houses which I thought would make a good subject. Before I got a chance to draw them, a large 4 x 4 parked in the space in front of me, so I had to content myself with drawing to top of the tree instead. Next Page
