I forgot how much I enjoy just simple ink sketches. I spent almost four hours in ‘Cafe de la table Ronde’, the second oldest coffee shop in France, in Place Saint-Andre. I worked on ink sketches, drank coffee, drank wine, had lunch (fillet of beef, so very fine) and finished up my ink drawings. The scene was just beautiful, surrounded by people, who were enjoying lunch, and then later on by people, who just finished work and wanted a cup of coffee on the way home.
Because you can’t fuss over every little detail and because you can’t erase the line already drawn, ink sketching is very freeing for me. You have to work fast, but keep on looking. You made a mistake, oh well, deal with it. I don’t want to overthink. Just draw what you see. Draw it well, draw it quickly. Replicate it to the best of your ability.
