sketching - day 1

For most of the day today, I concentrated doing monochrome work...something I am usually not very fond of, as I enjoy using colour immensely...but I thought I needed to push myself and do things I don't normally do...like detailed sketches...
After an hour or so of sketching I was shocked to discover I was enjoying it...a lot...
So I continued sketching all day...and nearly all of tonight...and will continue doing so tomorrow as well I think...its definetely got my attention!

I don't know if I will post any of it here...Im still not that confident enough with this approach....I feel mush "safer" when I use colour...strange-but true!

Other news...
I got a new housemate......his name is Onouffrios...
Nouffi for short....
he's a white lizard who at the moment is occupying my bathroom...He is rather small and err...sort of see-through....I noticed him a few days ago...he startled me at first, but he is harmless and he likes eating bugs so he could be my best housemate to date!!! If he stands still for me I will post a pic of him...

Time for bed I think...
Goodnight!

Do! I bet you're being your usual modest self about them. I have the opposite relationship with colour - I struggle - badly. But drawing I love. And I want to see Nouffi - wish we had lizards!
