Excuse me while I get a little philosophical.
I’ve recently expanded my repertoire of art supplies to include markers. Now I will admit I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my art supplies. In art classes I favored oil paints and charcoal and pen and ink, with a few brief forays with chalk pastel. I liked the tools I was familiar with. They were the tools of the masters. I always thought, growing up, that markers and crayons were for little kids. I was absolutely wrong about both of them.
I acquired a set of Copic markers in cool gray, and another set of the warm gray. With a few splashes of sharpie thrown in, I’ve come to truly love the effect they create. I am in love with markers.
Expect many pieces in the future featuring my new-found love.
