|12/2/19 Trees through my studio window|
Once the weather goes cold and dark, I find myself drifting more and more in the monochrome direction. Color can always be found, any time of year, if I look hard enough. But I think it’s more about my own mood than about the physical world. Winter is a more contemplative, introspective season (at least for me), and sketching with one color (or one implement) keeps the focus on values, shapes and form instead of hues.

blobby ink that came out unevenly. Back to my faithful Bic.)
