25th September

DP 268

It's very unusual for me to draw an envelope just in pencil, without any ink at all but I like the pale ghostliness that it gives here. I probably ought to work this way more often - perhaps I should even try ordinary pencil on the envelopes, I've been quite resistant to the idea because I'm afraid it would smudge badly but maybe that's OK. Maybe it's more than that, maybe I'm a little bit intimidated by pencil - it does seem a lot like 'real drawing' and that thought still scares me a little.
