It might be considered cheating using black and white photos for monochromatic drawing. After all, the photo has done all the hard work in stripping out colour information. I, however, like to think of it as making the most of available resources and time. Though it is probably just encouraging my innate indolence.
Who wouldn’t like to be a lady of leisure, lying all day in the sun by sparkling water. That would be fine for the first hour, then I would be completely burnt and have to seek shelter in a gallery or museum and regrow several layers of epidermis. Besides I get bored far to easily and need something to occupy my mind…and hands.
Sometimes I like to look back at old holiday snaps and remember the interesting places I’ve been. But mostly to exploit them as subject matter when I cannot be bothered to draw from life….
I have noticed that the problem with sketchbooks is that sometimes you still see the previous day’s post. Oh well, it adds “atmosphere”.
