Gesture drawings with pen and ink

It has been a while since I posted any pen drawings, thought it might be a good time to do so. Never been confident drawing with pen and ink for some reason, not the same feeling as charcoal on paper anyway. Maybe it is practice, or simply a personal thing. I guess I have to practice some more to find out which one it is though.(not much of a choice it is? *smile*)

These are 1 minute gestures done with Lamy fountain pen.

Location studies

Yep, it is that time again. The thought of updating the blog actually made it into my task list.(it was a tough fight) Couple of quick studies on scrap wood. Been working on improving my DIY paint box as well.

Quick sketch around the dock. 5.5x2 inch Acrylic, about 20 minutes

Twilight study of the office buildings near home. 7x2.5 inch Acrylic, about 20 minutes.
