Was playing around a bit, and did a thick dark wash and then started scrubbing the colour back to lighten the wash in preparation for drawing the model, and the holder area just seemed to magically appear on the paper. So I let it develop more and ended up with a drawing ( painting really ) I am very pleased with.
Scanner has picked up paper shadow, so enlarge it too see it better.
But then spent the rest of the session trying to recreate this and ended up with over worked stuff I do not like.
Is this an example of the 1 % that the rest of the drawings were leading to ?
