Ball-point pen portrait
Wow--I've forgotten how much I love ball point pen. It's so EASY, and it's not messy (plus I can use it anywhere). My student teacher is doing her full-time teaching stretch right now, and I have lots of time on my hands during the school day, but I just haven't thought I should get out my inks and set up anywhere. Where would I do it? In the library? In the English office? Though I'm not self-conscious about sketching anywhere, that seems a bit much. But I always have a ball-point pen in my bag.
It doesn't look like the scan got all the subtlety of this, and printer paper can't hold up to the stress of lots of dark lines, but I'm pleased. Maybe today I'll use card stock.
