Rachel's "October Days" Challenge

Joining in! I am using this sketchbook:



It has 100 pages, but a couple were ripped out from old sketches I did last year something, nothing worth staying in. So just like about 95 pages left.

The medium I decided to use are the Faber Castell's Pitt pens - 6 shades of Grey, 4 classic big brush (sepia/burnt orange/gray/black), and 3 blacks: Fine, Medium, Bold. (So I can at least use them, and not leave them lying in my desk drawer!!)



I've decided this sketchbook will be dedicated to all things of October. It'll keep me creative/busy enough.

Re: Rachel's "October Days" Challenge

Great start Rachel! I love the theme I think I might follow in your steps a little bit and do a couple October themed drawings. Your doodles are definitely very fun looking

Re: Rachel's "October Days" Challenge

Great pumpkins, and great theme for the sketchbook! October is a favorite month of mine as well (met my wife at a Halloween party a long time ago, and the crisp fall weather is nice as well). I've been using the Pitt pens a bit recently as well, thanks to seeing the work Robert does with them. Keep those October sketches coming!
