Flowers with a brush penPosted: March 31, 2016
I’ve really been enjoying using a brush pen. It just feels great to draw with. But it didn’t seem like it would be the right tool for sketching flowers. Delicate petals and subtle nuances of colour drawn with a thick black line? Would it work? I tried it out in a smallish Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbook (my favourite of their books), added a bit of watercolour, and I have to admit, it came out better than I expected. The thing about the brush pen is that it has an expressive line because you can add and release pressure while you draw. That’s probably why I like it so much, in fact. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
