I spent some time today cutting paper down to make a 4×6 packet, this one including Tiziano Pale Felt Blue, Mi-Teintes Dawn Pink, and some Strathmore 400 series white sketch paper to keep with me during the week to do quick studies (a goal of mine for this year).

I had a scrap left over, and it was too dark out to draw something outside, so I made up this quick sketch. 

I’ve been enjoying this switch over to loose papers versus a sketchbook, in part because it gives me choice of paper, but mostly because it makes it feel like I’m just drawing on scraps, so relieves any pressure of permanence that a book gives. I’ve already done more quick drawings in the past few days than I had been doing previously.
