Today I rarely use an eraser when working in coloured pencil, and when I do it’s more for actual drawing with than for erasing (see my blog post on ‘Drawing with Erasers’).
I love the bold, clean lines that a biro makes. This also applies to fine tipped felt pens which are excellent to work with too.
Today I am featuring a series of drawings that I did on the Liffey Valley, in Northern Tasmania. The original drawings were developed into a set of prints.
This type of work has an ‘etching’ appeal.
Have you tried drawing in biro?
One can work direct with clear, solid lines or build up layers of texture and detail with over-lapping lines or intense cross-hatching.
More next week.
