Twist of the Pointed Pen Booklet (Part 2)

Created: April 10, 2011


This is the 2nd part of a booklet I created in Barbara Close's class holding the samples we made during the weekend.


This is a continuation of the magazine drawing project. I wanted to do another one...

I'm really loving the quotes I've been choosing. This one is a pretty good one too. I did misquote it slightly - missed the words "so great or" before the words "so grave". C'est la vie.

I did this one with Sumi ink and used some Pebbles pearlescent chalks for the tea steam through the words.

This one is hard to see the iridescent color used in some of the loops. The paper is a lot blacker and everything pops more.

Again we were asked to do pen strokes in various widths, weights and strengths, adding depth here and there, but this time we weren't going to cut it up, so it needed to be good from get go... Then we needed to added text with it.

The whole thing was done with US ArtQuest "Stargazer" palette.



This is another one I wanted to do and I thought it would be a waste to have brought my Sookwang tape and not used it, so I semi bordered the piece and added Ritz glitter from my mish-mash container. Sumi ink again and Micron pen for the word "faith", colored with Prisma colors.

And I wanted to do this one too. Sheesh...

I used the Walnut ink on the watercolor paper, let the letters dry, then misted with wart, let dry and colored with prisma colors.

I'm not sure if I'll add some kind of mochaccino type cup or not. Still thinking.





This was a last minute thing but such a nice effect. Wrote the word with pearlescent ink in a rusty red color, then with a pencil drew a light line about 1/16' away from the letter, in the shadow area and with a paper stump and circular motion, lightly blend the graphite, but still keeping some definition of the original line.

Added the horizontal double embossed lines.

This is another piece that may get some additions to it. - still thinking on this one too.
