bought this old scrap book at a sale this summer out on Richwood road north of Detroit Lakes. It is a grainy surface to draw on and i enjoy the old coloring. most i can do on it is draw, no taking back too much with an eraser but i usually stay clear of that most times anyways. i practice mainly with a pen because i find once i add another component, such as an eraser, i take away from the attention i pay to actually looking intently into what i am drawing. when i do quick sketches, it is not so much what i get on the paper, but what joy i experience as i look at something that excites my motion to draw it.
