Ink Line Drawing




These two studies are examples of quick line drawings done in ink. With no pencil underdrawing or the ability to erase the ink marks, the artist is forced to make bold decisions when commiting each line to paper. Unlike the ala prima painting or the silverpoint drawing, which both allow room for some correction, this method is a one shot deal.

The table in the first picture seems to be filled with something. I can not put my finger on it, maybe the artist was making this his focus. -FSA
