Whilst we’ve been in Costa Rica I’ve been focusing on oil paints, but as our trip starts to draw to an end, it was time to return to the biro.
I’ve really enjoyed it! I think it’s the simplicity of the technique that I like. All you’re doing is drawing with an implement that never goes blunt, always gives you the same width of line, never needs sharpening and only runs out once or twice during each picture. It’s just you and the line.
You can find out about the 2 pieces I’ve done so far (there’s 1 more piece to do, and after that, I’m out of canvas!) here
