pen and ink portrait
My friend C protests she is not an artist but every year she takes a road trip on which she makes pen and ink landscapes. I am impressed. It takes me years before I am brave enough to abandon my pencil and eraser. Favorite pen #2, Platinum Fountain Pen, Preppy, Fine Nib, Black (PPQ-200-#1)
TV sketch plus, Scottie. Added a splash of watercolor. I am aiming for an Egon Scheile style of drawing. Pen, ink, and watercolor.
Reference sketch from the LOC on flickr; Amelia, ca 1915. Pen and ink on paper.
Another TV sketch, Arabella. Pen and ink on paper.
I like his mustache; Captain Walter Crosley, ca 1915. Old photographs fascinate me; reference photograph from the Library of Congress (LOC) which has a wonderful flickr site. Pen and ink on paper.
Quick Sketch : Young Gil
Ink on paper. I call these TV sketches as I sketch them while I’m watching a show. One doesn’t have time to be fussy, so the line work remains fresh. I used scrap paper and you can see some of the text from the back side bleed through. I have a sketch book, but where are they when you want one…
