Drawings in colour

sink

Hi again;

I’ve used monochrome drawings quite a lot over the break. I find them useful to help me notice things around me: the proportions, the shapes, the light and shades.

I find them useful also to help me feel comfortable with mistakes (pencil drawings are different: you can erase mistakes, redraw lines… get a better final drawing at the expense of more time and more work). Ink is unforgiving, so once a line is on paper I need to carry on regardless. Mistakes become just part of the drawing, rather than something to get rid of.

By the way, they asked me in class what I liked to draw. I think the last few posts contain the answer: I like to draw things I see around me. This time, my home details in colour: triggered by a sunny morning in my kitchen.

All the drawings here were done with a Pentel brush pen and food colouring.

Thanks for visiting my blog and drawings.
