I've been sketching with different types of pencils and pastels, using only black.
Its interesting how many different shades of black there are and it's a good exercise for improving tones using just one colour. I will try a wet media next.
Black is the right colour for our little valley, for weeks now we have had wild fires and most of the green on the hills opposite has been burnt. The good news is that the person responsabile has been caught red-handed. Here's hoping that nature can restore its former beauty.
Black is my colour this week...
