Ink Figure Drawings

Since ink can’t be erased, you can’t dither around with pen and ink drawings; you have to be deliberate and fearless. Ink can be very expressive and flamboyant, so the best thing is to just dive in and draw.

There is no substitute for the immediacy and vitality of working from life. You can't get that exuberance and spontaneity any other way. Combined with the maximum contrast of the ink's absolute black and the paper's absolute white, ink life drawings accentuate expressive line.
