Hat, Guitar, Chair and Cat

Todays quartet for the scavenger hunt. Graphitint pencils and Faber Castell sepia pen. I really like the way the graphitints work - the colours are very subtle used by themselves but add the water and they spring to life!

Trying to work more on composition. The idea of making interesting shapes in corners and having them reflected diagonally is so hard! I am really struggling with the concepts that Michael is trying to drum into us. Along with that he introduced negative space into the equation, need to do some research into that. This is definitely a walking exercise, two steps forward and several back!
