Giuseppe proudly displays how he’s arranged the rug to his liking. He was pretty comfortable there in the sun on his warm rug, so a sketch catching him looking up at me was a possibility, but I still had to finish with a black outline—the red earth pastel pencil just wasn’t clear enough.
My scanner has been sick and needs repaired. When I complete my sketches, I scan them on my Epson all-in-one into Photoshop instead of photographing them. It’s much more accurate and no need for an extra step of downloading, but when the light starts to “go” in one of these things it’s done for. The most damaged areas are right down the center of the scanner bed. You’ll see a few lighter stripes in the left area of this sketch if you look closely. I guess I’ll have to do really tall narrow sketches or scan them in two parts until I figure out what to do with this thing.
