You have got to have the steadiest hand in the business Andrea! Your precise hatching amazes me. And, unlike the "other" drawing, I know exactly what these are! Thank goodness for hints!
didn't need a hint :-)i agree with joan - steady hand miss. such remarkable control and the crosshatching is amazing - and that you stacked them (gutsy repetition) and gave us such an interesting angle. i like the choice of black for these and i always am nervous about using pen in the first place lol... no do-overs!
Your talent with ink... makes me want to hug my eraser! Seriously, you just floor me every time. Brava!
Very interesting composition. Black is scary to use when compared to sepia, but it suits this drawing perfectly. Beautiful, as always.
no need to guess... it is obvious!lovely as usual!
Weel, it's is obvious, it's five ligthers! You are very talented, love your drawings!
Just shows - ANYTHING can be the subject of a drawing. But only you could do it just like this. Black was a good choice for these - which I hardly ever see here in Oz. Smoking in public is banned nearly everywhere now. It's so nice - for the non smokers anyway.
Thank you all!You see, it's so difficult to judge; I thought that this one would not be instantly recognisable, it seems I'm wrong. Unlike the bra straps which I thought was really easy - but a lot of people had trouble with (he he!).Black was dfinately the right choice for this one. Cheers guys!Oh yeah, Jo & Tracy, I have done a post on my shaky hands in the past - definately NOT steady!
One of my favorite things is coming to your blog and discovering you've posted something new. Then I can click on the image and blow it up big and just sit there devouring all those wonderful lines. It's better than chocolate!
Weel, I was wrong!M.
You always manage to make one wonderful drawing and then add several more to the compostion and make it 5 times as wonderful! I love you sense of composition.
wow love the angle you've gone at this with, what an idea. Definately black yeah, works so well. I think it also makes them seem somewhat threatening or even dirty.. as if highlighting the dangers of smoking..maybe I'm just reading into it too much :Pare you a smoker? hope i haven't offended anyone..great drawing!!
If you don't have a steady hand then whose doing all these beautifully rendered, tightly controlled drawings? :) And the medium that scares me is watercolour. It's definitely not for me.
Thanks everyone,Fricka, I'm not a smoker (although I ued to be, a long time ago!). I have no idea how I've got so many lighters or where they came from?! Andrea, I'm with you there. I'm scared of watercolour too.Juj, nothing is that good!! he he.Thank you all.
This is brilliant. I love black ink and I love your black ink drawings as much as your sepia ... this is a shining example, SO beautifully detailed as usual.
Beautiful work, Andrea. I have to agree with Joan about the steadiness of your hand.
Cheers guys, but definately NO steady hand!
I don’t think it’s weird at all that you feel nervous about starting a black ink drawing. In my opinion it will also look great with sepia drawing, and I can’t see that the subject demand black ink. It may sound stupid but I don’t understand the subject, and I can’t distinguish the objects that you draw. I guess I don’t have imagination, or artistic vision. I should stick with computer work; this is something I good at, although I prefer art. You have a gift for painting, so don’t you ever stop. I wish you luck
