Tools in the studio

I was looking for something to draw for today’s Zoom chat with friends. To be more precise, I was looking for something easy to draw. I found these tools in my studio and plunked them down on my drawing table, under my desk lamp so I would get some cast shadows. Once I started to draw them though, I realized they were more complex than expected. Drawn with a Platinum Carbon Desk pen filled with Carbon Ink, in a Travelogue Watercolour Journal. Still one of the nicest combos I can find for ink drawings.

    Sharing I am just beginning the pen and ink journey seriously. I like the cross hatching and contour shading.

    I like this subject. Tools are everywhere. I’m helping my grandson learn to draw, and I’ll bet he will enjoy drawing some of his dad’s tools.


  8. Tools are a fun subject and your hatching makes them look great.
