Playing with ball point pen.

I came across this great book of horses : 'Horses of Camargue' here are some sketches I made from the book.
This is my first post here I don't do much with pen and ink but enjoy it when I do.

Ballpoint pen for these.



Bless you!



Foals



This was done, birds in black ink, horse in blue ink. It looks better in all black.



Love the interaction with the birds.



Frisky!


Oh that itch!



So strong.




Prancing




Portrait in blue.



A day at the spa!


Thanks for your comments. Here are some more sketches. I did all of these(horses ,dinosaurs, birds and bulls) over a few evenings.

These horses share their living space with these black bulls.


I got a little tired of horses and switched to dinosaurs. Studies to get ready for a mural. This is Struthiomimus.




A Sauropod (Brachiosaurus I wondered why they don't have articulated ears) and a Ceratopsian (Triceratops).

I'm not drawing much these days, but have enjoyed sketching animals. Here are some after some photos by my old friend Janice.





Thanks for looking.

Re: Playing with ball point pen.

Hi there! Love the free style especially in the horse studies. Can I suggest you look at the work of an artist-acquaintance of mine who specializes in horses. Her name is Fefa Koroleva; a lovely person who does some exceedingly beautiful horse studies.

Great work! Very energetic and a pleasure to look at. Freely-done, but completely convincing and well-drawn. You have an excellent eye.

Great loose style of these playful animals. Your last piece is stunning with a bit of color here and there. You should post the horses in the Southwest Forum sketch thread.
