Quick ink sketch

 Nothing like cleaning up to come across things you’ve not used for a while. In this case, it was an inexpensive bamboo hake dip pen. Hence this quick sketch of a succulent growing steadily but a bit wildly.

 As it’s not easy to control the ink flow, you don’t. This then makes for random line thicknesses which I think adds a bit of authenticity to mark making. Do you think?

  1. The random lines are much more interesting than a single thickness line – that is unless you can draw like Matisse!
    Have you tried drawing with ink and a stick? I’m often humbled by the lovely results i get when I allow myself not to be ‘in charge’ of the medium.


Would love to hear from you!
