Since I’ve still been struggling to find motivation and patience to start a new painting, I’ve at least satiated my hunger for making art by sketching. To make things more challenging (yet a good exercise) I’ve been sketching with ballpoint pen (and even at one point a sharpie). That way, when I screw up, I have to figure out how to work with that misplaced line/shadow/splotch rather than letting the left side of my brain take over and erase that “mistake”. Work with what you’ve got!
I’ve been doing ballpoint pen sketches here and there for a couple months and I just kept adding them to my previous post about sketches. Since that was starting to get a bit long I decided to create this new post for your viewing pleasure:

Keep checking back because I’ll inevitably just add more pictures to the end of this post rather than writing a new one each time.
