View Full Version : Brown Calf and Cow ~ xPost Pen & Ink

Yesterday's work cross posted, 5x7 ink sketch on Bristol cropped at that size on a 9x12 sheet. Tombow black brush pen was used to put in darks first followed by a rigger brush dipped in water to make the grey areas; white is the white of the paper. I loved the long cast shadows the cattle made in my original photograph.

Nice shading. The calf's eyes seem set a bit too high relative to the nostrils.

I need to use my brush pen more, I love the range of greys you can get from them. This is great, I really like the background cow.

Kay, I like this. It has inspired me to do more tonal work with pen and ink .

Thanks jonc50, Kay, Chammi. I guess the calf is squinting in the sunlight glare.
