Santa Monica


This is where it all began. By that I mean drawing with a ruling pen in the style. March 2007 I did THIS drawing and three years later I'm back to see where I'm at. I'm going to have to think about this one.

Well you improved . I like this one's delicate touch and the choice of colors is great too. That aqua if such a nice compliment and makes the building and bench so perfect. Very nice sketch

This is a beautiful drawing. I particularly like how you rendered the palm tree trunk.

No doubt Hans will disagree.

Thanks everyone, I really pleased with the drawing from yesterday which I will try and post on Monday if my scanner plays ball.

Great drawing, Stephen! But I have to ask, how on earth do you draw with a "ruling pen"? I'm picturing one of those ancient, tweezers-like things that you have to feed with an eye dropper of India ink, the kind I used to use back when I drew comics (before I discovered the Rapidograph). I love the brown line you've got here.

Anthony, yes that's exactly the thing, they are fun to draw with.
