Quick Draw

I used a picture taken of me at a Coldplay concert at the Phoenix Park. I decided to not bother with likeness and just go for it with the ink. This is done at top speed and with ink and a stick. There is great freedom in drawing quickly and often with surprising results. I tried the ink on a few paper types but the heavy grade Fabriano paper was great. When you draw with speed you have to make very fast intuitive decisions as to where to make the marks. It’s fun and if you make a mess you haven’t spent hours labouring over something. You just pull another sheet of paper out and fly on.
