I sketch often, using water soluble ink and a water brush. Without reading the instructions that accompanied my sketchbook, I just started drawing in it and quickly found out that the ink wouldn't slide across the paper as it usually does in my regular sketchbooks (The water warped the page!), so I decided to experiment with other drawing techniques to create intermediate values, still utilizing black and white only, as I always do when sketching. Value, as far as I can tell, is key to establishing a strong pattern in a drawing or painting, and I typically use my sketches as a basis for my watercolor paintings. I did devise some drawing techniques in this adventure, but my sketches are a disappointment. During the process of filling the sketchbook, I did actually read the directions but continued as I had begun, possibly not the best idea. Sketching is the way that I explore and get to know things, and, even with this self-imposed handicap, I continued in this process.
