The Art of Art (Part Two – Pencils)

As part of my Toy Soldiers hobby, I have been (slowly) making a Giant’s Causeway out of cheap coloured pencils. While this may hold some small interest for Art Lovers, the cause of this blog post is the Art that manifests itself behind the scenes.

You may remember my previous post, discussing the Art of my work bench, and the tissues and palette that build up with paint over time.

In a similar vein, I have inadvertently produced a sand-paper Art. I have been sawing and smoothing down pencils to create the hex-blocks needed to build the Causeway, and this has led to my sand-paper picking up the colours of the pencils. In this way, The Art of Art is produced, an accidental find, from the making of other Art.

I hope you appreciate it as much as I do!
