Megan en route - pastel 10x12

Many people prefer skill-and-realism (my family mostly) but I am of the sketch-and-flourish school - witness my pastel of Megan catching the ferry a few years ago. When it says what it is, I stop.

Sketch on Cheerios Box

I sketch on the back of a cereal box because it's nothing - no sweat if it doesn't turn out right, throw it away, there's no expense to speak of.
Besides, the cardboard is great for working on, it's semi gloss, and takes the Conté pencil very well, it doesn't like erasing though...try it.
