Drawing from the shoulder

As I draw more successfully from the shoulder, I tend to be happiest standing and drawing on big paper. I get more fluency and the linear marks are nearer to what my eye sees than those in my sketch book.

Do I need a bigger sketchbook ?
Must look for a good hardback one that I like to use. Much more effective larger marks when large and so I have problems working on A4 and even A2 at times.

Think the same with the brush. I need to stand back more. Buying a couple of long handled brushes has helped. When I work too closely I get detail but do not always want or need.
