Try varying the technique to give a range of tone and surfaces. It can go as light or dark as you like, or as rough. Use it to create shadows and let the  white page be sunlight.   Once you have got the idea then use it on all sorts, it is great for giving volume and weight, and once you get going you will wonder at all the fuss over drawing the perfect outline.  Take a look at some  of the great artists’ sketches – I didn’t invent this , it has very strong roots and provenance.

So much to try, so much to do……… who needs sleep, or food?
