I used, when supposed to be revising for a Physics exam or some such, grab whatevr was to hand and do a quick sketch of the "view" from my dormitory window. Platignum, in the early 60s, produced the forerunner of the Magic Marker, an ink reservoir with a spring-loaded felt tip, press down and ink was relased onto the felt; to an extent one could control the opacity. I also, often, grabbed gobbets of watercolour on the tip of a screwdriver and applied colour - here are two such sketches:


You can see how the colour density could be controlled in the B&W sketches:

With hindsight, I should have done art at advanced level rather than Advanced Level Pure and Applied Mathmatics, but my art master never suggested it.
