Ink Drawings

Ink is especially useful for croquis drawings, very quick sketches made in just a couple of seconds or minutes. I draw freehand with no preliminary pencil construction lines. I try to ignore the details and just draw the big shapes. The looser and more relaxed my hand is, the faster I can draw. Leaving the tip of the pen on the paper produces a lot of loops and squiggles, but saves time.

I love to draw people wherever I go, especially in planes, airports, subways, trains, restaurants, hospitals, concerts, parks and streets. Musicians are especially challenging to draw. I also love to draw animals.
