Textural Techniques in Pen and Ink

July 9, 2015 § Leave a comment

A few examples of portraying texture with ink through hatching, stippling, and a scribble technique based on your own handwriting. I find these methods provide an energy and looseness to our drawings that allow us to become more free in our expression.

Still Life Using Stippling, Hatching, and Scribble

November 30, 2014 § Leave a comment

This is the same still life of pumpkins using a variety of textural techniques such as stippling, hatching, and scribble instead of just stippling. One gets a very different effect here; perhaps a more energized drawing.IMG_4699

Pen & Ink Gradation Technique with Scribble

July 30, 2014 § Leave a comment

This is the last in a series of pen & ink gradation techniques based on a scribble derived from your handwriting.  My students complete lines of their own signatures and then transform this handwriting to a scribble.  What I find so remarkable about this technique is the personal and intimate nature of this process.  Each drawing is attached to the personality of the artist. By now you have probablyIMG_4563IMG_4580 figured out that stippling is not my favorite.  Both hatching and scribble give me greater freedom.  I am committed, however to working with looser approaches to stippling.
