One Half, Pen and Ink Sketch, by Kim Blair

One Half
Pen and Ink Sketch on Paper
3.75 x 2.75 inches 

This little pepper sketch was created using a black ink uniball pen.  Spontaneous and quick strokes within a little frame... different mark making from the previous 'chop stick' and ink drawing.

Gothic Vegetable Drama, Pen and Ink Sketch by Kim Blair

Pepper Sketch
Pen and Ink On Paper

A bamboo chop stick (dipped in black ink) was the drawing instrument I used to create this sketch.  The dramatic, loose line work in this drawing of a pepper cut in half depended on whether I was using the side or the fat blunt end of the chop stick.
A bit of gothic vegetable drama...

Black Top, Pen and Ink Sketch, by Kim Blair

Black Top
Pen & Ink Sketch

Not sure why I am fascinated by peppers, but I feel the need to sketch and paint them from various perspectives... allowing their unique, almost anthropomorphic characteristics to surface.
