Step 5: In your sketchbook create four (4) different 3" x 4" thumbnail sketches experimenting with your unconventional material. How can you use it to create line, value, shape, and/or texture?
Step 6: In your sketchbook using your PITT pens and your unconventional material, now create at least four (4) 3" x 4" thumbnail sketches that incorporate each of the random elements that you chose.

a unified and dynamic composition
a focal point
variation of line
