A ship of Fools
Having made a start on a large scale version of the Fool and his companions, I am adjusting the picture all the time. The composition has changed as I was not happy with the relationship between each character, or the size of the boat.
The paper -I am using- is much softer, the moleskine is watercolour rough whilst the larger sheet is watercolour smooth. Both about 260lb weight but with a completely different surface. This has made a complete change in the pencil work. You live and learn.
