As part of the series of classes I went to earlier this year around drawing the head I also started using quite a bit of ink. It’s quite a free way to draw, especially when used with a brush.
Something I am planning to experiment with further.
Here are a series of quick drawings I did at the end of a longer session.
Big week this week, I seemed to make many many drawings.
We had two models for the session as one was a little late and we shared with another group at the start – they’re different sexes so hopefully it’s easy to tell which is which.
10 – 15 minute pose to start. I tried working with chalk.
Then 2 minute poses to warm up.
Then something new. New for me anyway as I am sure I’ve never really drawn with ink before. Pretty sure anyway.
We all took a pot of ink and a wooden kebab stick and got started. In this first drawing you can see me struggling with my materials a bit as I don’t complete the whole figure before we move on.
Then I get to add a brush.
And finally once we have familiarised ourselves a bit we tried two longer poses, around 25 minutes I think.
I really enjoyed working this way. Something to try again.
