Have you ever tried working the continuous line exercise where you do not lift your pencil/pen off the paper for the entire subject you want to sketch? I've always loved Brenda Swenson's paintings where she uses that method and admired others who can pull it off successfully.
Well I'm not one of them........lol.
This started out as a continuous line but only made it down to the railings when I said forget it and went to my normal sketching. I found my hand shaking so bad that the nib was lifting off the paper.........so much for continuous line. :-)
Should I try again, I think I need to pick a much easier subject.
