Primavera Unraveling

Another new brush pen drawing of a head in a kind of "art nouveau" style, for want of a better term. I find that the brush pen (kind of a high-quality marker with synthetic brush bristles at the nib end) has unleased my lines into a more flowing, organically curved direction. The brush pen is not perfect & sometimes I wish the lines were more brushlike and less markerlike, but all in all it functions very well. I'd like to see them (Pentel) develop the pen into a bit more of a fine art tool, perhaps, but it works fine for now.

Primavera Unraveling, 2011, brush pen on paper, 16.5" x 14".
