5 x 5 Exhibition and Fundraiser
I'm pleased to announce that I have been asked to include a small work on paper for an online exhibition and fundraiser at Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art in California. All work will be available to view and bid online by clicking here.
This is the drawing I made and it has been a nice departure from my Moleskine sketchbook drawings. This was a good excuse and exercise to test the possibilities of a ballpoint pen with a softer and slightly more texture paper like Rives BFK. The advantage to drawing on this paper with pen is that I was able to get very soft areas without much effort. The downside of this paper is that I was not able to get deeper tones because the paper was too soft and acted as a cushion for the pen. In all I'm pleased with this test run and I will be making more of these drawings on different papers and see where that takes me.
