Sometimes when there’s no time for anything elaborate, I just draw in the notebook.  This drawing I copied from a Bonnard painting I found reproduced in a book.  The medium is ballpoint pen.  The generalized features with which Bonnard captures the personality of his mysterious wife lend themselves well to casual, careless pen lines.

I made this drawing in a journal where I jot down comments on the passing days.  It will surprise me again someday, perhaps years from now, when I stumble upon it once more .

  1. Nice little sketch. It will be interesting to review the journal years from now. You should add a sketch of some kind to every entry to see how your drawing changes over the years.
