Ink Drawings on Brown Paper

Sea_TurtleFor about two years now I have been enjoying the use of my Steadler pens on a small square Bee paper drawing pad. They are small enough to take with me everywhere! My studio literally becomes where ever I am. I have used this flexibility of space as a means to bring more flexibility into my drawings. Where once my drawing skills were basically a means to an end to work out ideas for paintings they have now evolved coming into their own.

Here are some images of the drawings and some of me in various places creating the drawings. What a ride and its not over yet!

All of these drawings and more to come are in my etsy store Krislyninobscura. I have originals and prints. Check it out!

Know Thyself pt. 2

WhitePaint_1Another attempt at a self portrait. I feel I got a little closer this time with some obvious proportion and shape problems. I love the white paint pen, as I noted in an earlier post, and it helped me a lot with this. I think my next portrait will be of one of my friends next time I can snap some high contrast photos of one of them. Just to take a break from my own face for a while.


Here is a progress image and the original photo.
