I started working on this new piece today on a block of 140lb Arches hotpress. Tomorrow I’ll start the real work of rendering the image using diluted inks to model the forms. As I go along, I’ll post some progress shots here on the blog. Although I did many works with this technique in the past, its been a few months, so I’m looking forward to it.
Pollen is a new drawing (personal work) that I finished towards the end of January. It was done using .13 & .18 Rotring Rapidograph pens. The image below is a quick iPhone shot of a new work in progress called Hearts Divided. I’m hoping to get it done in the next few weeks, working on it between other things. The piece is 17″ x 14,” ink on archival quality illustration board.
On the writing front, I’m in the middle of a full revision of my latest novel The Tailor of Echoes. My goal is to have it completed by the end of March.
Symphonist No.5 is a silverpoint miniature (4″x3″). It’s one of an ongoing series. Silverpoint lends itself beautifully to miniature work due to the precision you can get with the silver stylus. Over time, this drawing will darken as the particles of silver trapped by the ground begin to tarnish.
This is a new drawing called WATER COLUMN. It is available for sale on my webstore.
WATER COLUMN is an original pen and ink pointillism drawing by Richard. It was created with .18 & .25 Rotring pens on 200 G Cranson Watercolour Paper. The page size is 8.5″ x 11.”
This piece, FORAGER, is also available.
FORAGER is an original pen and ink pointillism drawing by Richard. It was created with .18 & .25 Rotring pens on toned 250 GSM acid free Stonehenge paper. The page size is 9″ x 12.”
Purchased item ships flat, well protected in 3 layers of foamcore.
This image is my most recent work. I am re-posting two other works below that were completed in late 2014, and part of the same cycle.
Most Sunday was spent working on this drawing. Enjoy!
