I just bought the most wonderful sketchbook from Barnes & Noble. Nice thick perforated pages beckon to me to draw everyday. I love to use black ink on nice, white smooth paper, and I challenge myself to let go of my need for perfectionism without sketching first in pencil before I outline in ink. I just start drawing and wherever the pen takes me I go. If I make a mistake I just let it go and learn to live with it. It's challenging and also very freeing. The paper is white, but my cell phone insists it's grey.
