Repose: A Single Line Scribble


19 3/4″ x 25 1/2″, brown sepia Faber-Castell pen on fine art paper

This drawing is a fifteen minute single line “scribble” life study of Daisy. For the duration of this pose I kept the pen moving on the paper in a scribble manner, adjusting the density of the scribble according to the relative lightness or darkness of the value or tone I observed. This is a great loosening up exercise both for your arm and body as well as for your line itself. I drew this standing up with the paper vertical on an easel and looking between the paper and the model, never stopping the movement of my hand on the paper.


This drawing will be on display at my Fall Open Studios, Sunday, October 27 (11am – 6pm).
