Drawvember 2020 days 11-15

Day 11: “Buccaneer”

Pencil work for this fierce lady pirate aiming a pistol and holding a sword.

Day 12: “Altitude”

According to my research, these men were interviewing to work as painters on the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, by walking on its own cable. I used a black ink fine liner and light grey ink Brush Writer by Kuretake. I didn’t use a ruler.

Day 13: “Shipwreck”

This theme was much harder than I anticipated. I didn’t know what I wanted to draw and had very little inspiration. Eventually I settled for something graphic and evocative of a shipwreck: a Kraken tentacle holding the mast and pirate flag of a ship. I used black ink.

Day 14: “Zebra”

I painted the background using acrylic graphite ink and then used a fine brush and white calligraphy ink to paint the white parts of the zebra.

Day 15: “Drums”

Former colleague Mauro once made me listen and watch something called Kodo, the Japanese drums. I loved it. I used a black ink fine liner, black ink Brushpen by Pentel and Light Grey Brush Writer by Kuretake.
