White Marker Experiment - Hagia Sophia

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a white marker and thought I'd play around with it. This is the result (on toned paper). The size is 5 x 8. Thanks for looking.

I have not. Are they good? I'm using a Faber-Castell White Artist brush pen.

Look good, I find the composition very interesting, highlights a very important landmark and a path that draws you to it. Also the suggestions of there is much more to the drawing. White on tone paper is interesting, worth exploring more.

Re: White Marker Experiment - Hagia Sophia

White on coloured paper makes a very effective lightest tone - adds such a lot to the liveliness of a drawing don't you think?
Lovely drawing Andy.

My one crit is the curvature of the tiles on the dome of Hagia Sophia - they're above your eye level and should curve upwards to the centre!
The other domes are fine!

Re: White Marker Experiment - Hagia Sophia

Yes I've seen this drawing on a toned paper technique & followed it with interest here.
After thought I've come to the conclusion that a dark line on a light coloured paper IS pen & ink ! - as I personally understand it's strengths, where the line rules supreme & what it can do in terms of a very direct expression of the artists feelings.
I freely admit to being a purist in my P&I taste , but I can't help feeling that work on toned paper somewhat deserts the real spirit & power of P&I drawing.
LINE is no longer the primary thing in such work priorities are suddenly transformed to different aims using different techniques.
It's not that I can't appreciate it , I certainly can - but then I appreciate water colours & oils etc. etc. but it is not quite a pen line drawing.
Something is lost for me , for others I'm sure they will feel it is gained .
Probably it's just me
Mike

Very nice! I like the composition and the rendering. This is a lovely building complex and you have drawn it beautifully.
