Bombastic Brush and Ink

By in horses, men, sketches, women


These brush drawings feel bombastic to me. A little quieter now that they’re scanned and put up. Still, that big brush line seems to “yell” more than the spidery pen. Harsh contrasts.

The page below is from one of those big books, and it’s hard to cover all that area with the brush. Also, my ink was running out, so, I just had to go with it.

The two big heads are from photos of poets from this book of stories and quotes about poets in Montreal. Drawing from photographs is boring to me, but sometimes it gets me out of my own head. It’s a drab day, so there might be more drawing from inside.
