EDM #61 2 drawings


This drawing on the left took me about 10 minutes. I did it with my Micron pen. The pencil drawing took me about an hour. Lots of erasing and working on shadows. I think Danny has the right idea for beginners.... work with a pen and if you don't like the line, make another one next to it. I just get too involved with pencil, and I work too hard to make it "perfect". I had more fun drawing the ink drawing.

Hi Marilyn ~I am finding the same to be true - just start with that pen and stick with it!! I am doing sketches with NO erasing and NO fuss, so that sounds good to me! I enjoyed your brushes and I can identify with what you said. Stay here and post, ok??

Hi Marilyn,
I've done loads more sketching since I started using pen. I can see what I'm drawing as well - pencil lines keep rubbing themselves out.

Your brushes pics are great. I like your journal pages too - really colourful. Collage always looks easy but is actually hard to do well.

I have to say that I too like the ink drawing best! Thanks for your kind words.

Hello, Nice work on your blog. I do like the colorful pages! The only reason I lik pencil better than pen is because I can erase!! Ah well to each her own I guess.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting:)

I like pen and ink, yeah some times the lines get wonky but I just love the look.
