I brought some smooth cartridge paper with me, so I could try my Luminance 6901 pencils on it. It’s A3 size, which is a bit too large for me, but if I fold it in half, it seems to be perfect. I could do a bit larger drawing than usual, and it feels good:
Also, it’s very smooth and pencils do well and quickly and evenly cover what needs covering. I was again inspired by autumnal colors and leaf shapes. I find it hard to make good photos lately, because it’s so dark outside, but I guess that’s it. Nothing to do to help it, and as you can see one side of the drawing is darker and one is lighter, even though I put it under a roof window to photograph.
It’s a warm cloudy day today, probably it will rain later on. I used the opportunity to go for a run this morning and not get frozen. It was very enjoyable. It’s only Tuesday, so we are still far from the weekend. I have to concentrate on school because I need to do a follow-up on two case studies and have only four weeks left for that. Of course, I do not feel like writing and researching, but that will be one step closer to my degree, so it has to be done. No use thinking too much.

Autumn is really in the air. I love the simple elements combined to make one beautiful mandala.
Thanks Carrie 🙂
Lucy, this is really wonderful. I love the autumn leaves and the doodle ovals on the edge of the mandala. Lovely!
I love your use of Autumn colours and shapes in this piece, Lucy. It’s perfect. I hear you on the lighting for photos right now. My photos of my art at the moment are either dulled or else have me casting an ugly shadow over them.
