Things are quite busy over here. But most importantly: Look! Marker! I tried sketching with marker a while ago and wasn't crazy about the result. I kind of gave up on them at that point. I think mostly it was because I still didn't have a good grasp on colour. Since I've been working a lot more with colour and studying it more consciously I thought I'd give markers another shot and I'm really enjoying them this time around! I started a new sketchbook about a week ago and every page so far has marker on them. This is a really great way for me to get down colour ideas on the spot. It's worth noting that I felt my usual amount of fear/anxiety about trying something I knew I'd failed at before but the difference is that I ignored that feeling really easily and was able to just dive in without worrying too much about whether or not things would look good or not. Hurrah for the magic of the Failure Challenge!!!
