Multi-colours vs monochromatic lines
Imagining Sunflowers: Happily immersing myself in the flow of a pen, pencil or brush across paper, I love to draw. This flower piece is done with one simple black roller pen. Barely touching the paper with feather strokes produces grey areas; shading on leaf lower right is achieved with a little saliva on my fingertip to slightly blur the ink whilst it’s still damp.
Tangled Trunks: Lines in this graphite piece are infinitely more varied in tone and texture. Here changes in pressure produce greater depth. Both drawings contain useful information, reflecting my moods. Top is a doodle, bottom is a study from a real subject.
