This assignment was about exploring a wide variety of textures and practicing rendering them. I chose both graphite and colored pencil for this, for a couple reasons, namely that I wanted to make sure I remembered how to use colored pencils at all. And a sketchbook is a lower-stakes proving ground. Though there is something to be said for working only in a medium like graphite or charcoal, because you don’t have to think about color so much.
The captions got cut off on the bottom two, but what you’re seeing there are the bristles of a watercolor wash brush and a segment of a linen curtain panel.
