Drawing with Pens
As some of you may know, I’ve registered with Drawing Tutorials Online at the beginning of November. I’ve done one landscape drawn with pencils in the meantime, and a few done with pens. If you are a follower of this blog you will have seen them because I am presenting my drawings here on this blog as well.
It seems that I have found my favorite drawing tool. It is the pen – be it a ballpoint pen or one of those “fineliners” normally used in technical drawing. Because today the last of my pen drawings – a poppy – got a quite good critique over at Drawing Online Tutorials. Of course I am happy (who wouldn’t be?) but the important thing is: I know what to focus on. There are differences between how you draw with pencils and how you do it with a pen, and it will be a challenge to find out how to “translate” pencil drawings and pencil drawing tutorials into pen drawings. I am definitely looking forward to it!
