Making marks

An important part of my practice as an artist is experimentation with materials. I dedicate time to trying out new materials or techniques, and expand my approaches to drawing. This year I've been using a lot of black ink to create my drawings, this really started to be the main medium I was working with when I was creating the illustrations for Doug Karr's novel Dwelling. It is a medium I continue to return to as I explore the relationship between the wet medium of ink and the surface qualities of the papers.

Today, I'm sharing with you one of my recent ink drawings 'Ink Foot' from a series of drawings I have created called 'Strange Creatures'. In this series the paper is prepared with ink marks to create monochrome surfaces of pattern before a dip pen is used to create a line drawing.

Thank you - there is nice subtle range of tones and surface pattern in the original created by the light ink washes.

I do not understand what kind of drawing it is....my dear friend

It's more of an abstract piece - but there is the suggestion of a leg and foot

Cool technique! I love the outcome :-)

a perfect drawing you added to the collection :)
Your creativity does not stop!
