Stillness 01 - Bic Ballpoint Pen Artwork

My first official painting for the "Bathers" series and my second try at drawing entirely with a blue Bic ballpoint pen. This technique I think could be closely related to sculpting, since there's no way of erasing or undoing. I am really loving this technique and am researching more about it to find out if it's a worthwhile thing to keep doing. Cheers!

8 x 8 inches
Ballpoint on Bristol smooth vellum paper

Private collection

whaaa?!?! 'tis fantastic !!!

I can't even use a ball-point pen to sign my name!! This is beyond talent; this is something that dazzles us near mortals!

I love how you captured the sensualness of this scene! It allows the mind to fill in the blanks: what she's thinking, what she's feeling, what she's feeling done to her(!).

The lighting and texture are amazing!! Her hair is outstanding, and the light reflections are SO realistic!

Again, Outstanding!!!
