Some ink drawings


Some ink drawings from May 11, 2013 at 6:32pm.  These are each about 4 inches tall.  I have been doing a lot of drawings in this size lately.  I have been using Prismacolor markers with a brush tip and they have the ability to make these incredibly thin lines.  The extreme pressure sensitivity has lead me to experiment with chair and desk height to get the optimal arm position. I have good results on a low lap desk that allows my whole arm to move.…

Ink Drawings

I made these drawings on April 6, 2013 at 10:02am.  I used liquitex ink and a refillable OTR marker.  Each drawings is approximately 9×12 inches.  I made several sets that morning, will post some more soon.


Multicolor Grids





I’ve been experimenting with acrylic inks in refillable pens from On the Run.

Experiments with the new markers continue.  The drawings here were done with the “transformer marker” which has an interchangeable head for nibs of different size.  These were made with the 15mm nib.  The ink is Liquitex Acrylic Ink, which I have been using not so much because I like it but because it is available at a local store.  The ink is not bad, but it does not have some of the qualities I like in other inks.  Drying speed is not something that I had thought would be important but I have found that the faster drying inks have a more even color.  …

New Pens!

I just got a box of new pens!

I had been filling the Molotow pens with Liquitex acrylic ink but I wanted to try the Molotow One4All ink.  Let me just say that there is no comparison.  The Liquitex inks are transparent water based ink with good color. The One4All inks are smooth, fast drying, matte and very opaque.  They are UV resistant and very permanent as well.  Which is good, a lot of paint pens do not have archival quality ink.  …

Small Ink drawings

These are some more paint pen ink drawings.  I used Molotow empty markers 111EM and 211EM filled with the Liquitex acrylic ink.  These are smaller than the other ink drawings I made with these pens.  These are 2.5″ x 3.5″ inches each.  I worked on this set on September 28th, 2012 around 5:50 am.  I was working fast and they are un-numbered so they are probably out of order.  These are 18 of my favorites from that morning.


Some more ink drawings with purple.  I am use the On The Run Soultip .3″ with Liquitex “acrylic ink” which comes in my favorite paint colors.  This is Dioxazine Purple and Sap Green.
