These are 2 Pen and Marker drawings of a man, created in an abstract art style. They were sketched from life during a figure drawing session in 2003, and are 5″x3″. The pen lines were sketched first, very loosely to provide some basic points of reference for the faces and body. The dark black pen keeps those important parts of the drawings visible amidst the colorful markers. Shades of black and gray were added to the background to pop out the profile of the subject, and bright orange lines were sketched in with marker. The final compositions stay loose, abstract, and focus more on the relationships between thin and thick lines and large areas of dark and light color.
