Go ‘white’…

…And set it on black. Endless possibilities of expression in illustrating. Imaginative, figurative, cut from reality or just from a dream.

Here, focused with the details and to acquire shine effect around the subject. Used inkpens, white and silver, as well as a fine touch of white charcoal.

Drawing is therapy

…And not only drawing, sketching, painting, any form of following your passion into a performing art, helps to cure the fears, filling the loneliness up, turning the darkness of the spirit into the light.

Drawing help to sustain a healthy method of self-expression

Drawing can also be used as a method of communication for the more introvert people (in regards to expressing ideas and thoughts) and encourages creative problem solving and self-discovery (finding your own style, for example).

Dare to do it

Well, I’ve started this while being in Bologna airport, waiting for my flight. Initially thought to be a ‘pure sketch’ (or something to recall a cartoon), turned into mixed media and different expressions.

For drawing I’ve used white and silver inkpens. Then, I’ve decided to continue with oil pastels finish and touch to gaining contrast and texture. Outcome became somehow coarse, not a fine detailed picture- I count on textured substrate and shining effect. Working with oil pastels on that media wouldn’t deliver fine details, however the bright aspect of composition can ‘pay-off’.

Sunday’s mood

Breakfast, Sunday. Raining, windy. Inner calling of Springtime. Still to go through storms. Capricious time of the year.

Got this, sipping the coffee. I wanted to do it, in spite of coarse combination- black stock paper and oil pastels. Until I’ll get my real lavender in garden.

Texture workshop

Using textured black paper (sort of 200 grams/m²) and oil pastels (Sennelier), got to this…

With these combination one to notice how both media substrate and oil pastel pencils, add their on separate ‘contribution’ to the final look & feel.

Splash into the blue

I create this, adding in the ink pen (white/ silver) to draw the colours boundaries. With ink pen introduced, I think that’s opening new possibilities in expression while using (somehow restrictive in setting down) oil pastels.
