Brush pen drawing

Continuing the practice of figure drawing, focusing on faces and hands. I’ve been doing quick brush pen work from images on my iPad or on Zoom calls as one way to practice. I like these brush pens for line drawing and using a few lines to capture a shape. Proportion is less important, and some distortion makes it more interesting. Capturing the shapes of the lips and the eyes makes all the difference.

I like these a way of delibrate practice with figure drawing, but it’s obvious that I have a long way to go. The first one of my son Sam below is my favorite. I’m going to try branching out of line drawing with these pens as well and try for some different techniques. More to come soon I hope.
