Shakespeare Drawing Finished

July 13, 2011

I’ve finished the background on the Shakespeare drawing, so I’m going to declare it all done. I’m including a few close-ups.

The full drawing is 14 x 30 inches, and about three pens gave themselves up for this thing. A drawing made this way at this size is sort of like painting a wall with a toothbrush, but it was a good learning experience.

This is on Strathmore heavyweight Bristol paper (400 series.) The surface has some small slick spots here and there from the external sizing they use that causes the ink to skate across it, otherwise it takes ink okay and holds up well in dark areas of solid black.
