Fanfare / 팡파르

Pen & pastel, 2018

When I first finished sketching with pen, the flowers were almost invisible because of the crowded leaves. So I had to blur out most of the leaves with pastel and work on the flowers many more times. I can only wonder how old masters of pen drawing achieved clarity with lines alone.

처음 펜 스케치를 마쳤을 때, 복잡한 잎에 묻혀 꽃은 거의 보이지 않았다. 그래서 파스텔로 잎들을 흐리고 꽃을 여러 번 덧그려야 했다. 옛 펜화의 달인들은 어떻게 선만으로 명료한 그림을 그렸던 걸까.

    1. Thank you! I’m new to pen drawing and the texture was an afterthought but I’m glad you like it! I like the roughness of the pastel on pen as well – perhaps will try again.
