What I have not drawn, I have never really seen.
Here are some sketches using several monster big bamboo pens and a brush, with the old standard Higgins waterproof ink.
I think a paper that has some tooth and weight really helps, as the bamboo pen does not move like a felt tip or a brush. By really concentrating on mark-making it is easy to begin thinking more abstractly. Soaking the bamboo pen in clean water before drawing also makes the experience much more friendly for sweeping strokes and fluidity.
This summer I am concentrating on expressive rendering, trying to move quickly and let serendipity take the reins.
So I am working big or really tiny, because mid-size lets things get a bit ” too real and controllable”!
