Gotta Love that Pentel Brush Pen

April 11, 2013

130220_WomanCoquilleLeft: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch on coquille paper, 8.5 x 11 inches.

Yesterday's post was about sketching directly with a brush and gouache, and reworking areas.

Remember I said sometimes you might not be in the mood for the "strident" black line of the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen?

Well other days you will be. And it will make you happy to simply pick up that pen and sketch, anything, anyone. And you'll love every nuance of that strident line because it will help you to edit.

And it will be extra fun if you're working on coquille paper.

Just saying…

    The line has a great sense of animation and dimension.

    Thanks Ellen, sometimes the eye and the hand and the brain all sync up and for me making each line is almost like carving it. Nothing gives me this sensation more than the PPBP with it’s perfect amount of resilience and give. And on this day I managed to resist the urge to be fussy and fill in shading! I hope you have some fun sketching today.

    Coquille and PPBP here I come, perhaps it will work it’s way into my IFJM journal as well. Great sketch with economy of line.

    Thanks Miss T. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
    I wish I could do that in my sketches of Maxwell!

    Margo, you will love coquille paper and the PPBP. And if it makes it into your IFJM what could be better!!!!! (I don’t think I have any coquille paper in my fake journal YET!)
