I had some spare time over the weekend and had just finished up my dachshund
drawing, so I felt I wanted to loosen up a little and what better way than with
some large paper and markers?
This piece is 10×14 inches and is drawn on
a heavily textured watercolor paper. I used Faber-Castell brush pens (more marker than pen) in various
shades of gray and black. I found it surprisingly easy to blend the shades to
soften the markers’ edges. When I put down some darks, I would go over them with
a pale gray and it blended the shades very well.
It took me about four hours to draw this. I had a lot of fun with the drawing as I did not use pencil to
sketch it – just grabbed my markers and built the scene as I went. I was working
with an old photo of a young fellow in an ornate chair.
Feels so good to loosen up sometimes!
