I needed the scratching of the pencil. The softness and hardness of the tones. Working on big sheets feels like a good direction and it makes my drawings come together. I can walk around my work. Look at it from all different angles. Step on my tiny ladder, or do a little dance. I used a Caran d’Ache pencil 3888 #070, named Scarlet. Below you’ll find images showing the beginning (click to enlarge), and then some close-ups plus The final one.
