Ball Point Pen
Contact me if your interested in purchasing this drawing.
I know this is not an alla prima painting but I wanted to share one of my ball point pen drawings that I love to do, its a good break from the alla prima's that I enjoy so much. This drawing I did a couple months back and finally I'm posting it, I was able to get a good scan of it and show it to everyone. These ball point pen studies really are done for practice and I hardly even think of them as show pieces. There is no particular reason why I decided to draw Darwin other than the fact that I came across his portrait and really loved the texture in his skin and decided to just render the heck out of it. I really enjoy doing this drawings I apply what I learn to my paintings, I strongly believe that drawing and painting are so closely related. If you'r a good draftsmen than painting will not be so difficult for you, a lot of people overlook drawing as not important but in reality its everything. I always love to go back to drawing and brush up on the fundamentals. I hope you guys enjoyed this one, thanks for stopping by!
