I started the month of October thinking I’d do a little ink sketch everyday. It hasn’t happened. Still, I’m glad I have #inktober on my mind. It reminds me to focus on penwork and not always use color to finish a piece.
Like these little gestural sketches. On the left, people walking out of the grocery store. On the right, Starbucks. It’s amazing how much a little color can convey in a black and white sketch.
These quick brushpen and ink studies are from a figure drawing book I am currently reading: Life Drawing: How To Portray The Figure With Accuracy And Expression
A sketch from Sausalito. Looking back, it worked better without color.
Another inktober post coming up at the end of the month. Are you doing the inktober initiative? It’s never too late to start…
