Here are several of my pen & ink drawings. I’ve done over the years. I will talk about each one as we go but first I will point out pen & ink techniques.
One important asset to Art Work is patience. People think that because you are an artist you can click your fingers and have a Michaelangelo art work yesterday. Every one wants something done yesterday. Well, I’ve news for you, if you want something good you have to have patience and see it through and keep a cool head on you. Art is hard work.
With pen & ink techniques. You basically can do line, cross hatch, dot, dry brush or make up your own technique. You can use any colour ink you want. Best though to use quality paper and good quality ink. I recommend Staedtler pen & ink pens, they last longer. In Graphic Design in 1987, Staedtler pens were not available and had to use the hard Rotring Pens and they dried out quickly, you really had to look after those. They were hard to use. Sometimes I just like the colour of the Blue ball point pens.
