Presentation Study in Pen and Ink Techniques



"Nice" is a dramatic study in pen and ink with many dark shades of stippling to highlight the stunning beauty of the model.

This particular pen and ink work was utilized after locating a photo on the web of a strikingly attractive model in a simple "flirtation" pose.

After contacting the photographer in the Czech Republic, this artist obtained permission to do a study utilizing the photograph as a basis for the artwork.

The use of stippling combined with strong line work for the young lady's hair offers a pleasing contrast to the overall pen and ink techniques.

Rather than using a heavy wash background it was decided to utilize stippling with a No. 2 pen to highlight the subject: the young model.

The result offers dimension to the artwork.

This study in pen and ink techniques was completed in June 2006.

The work took approximately 15 hours to complete and measures about 8 x 10 inches on an 11 x 14 background.


The original photograph used in creating this pen and ink sketch is Copyrighted by Lubomir Chury and is used with permission of the photographer and model.
