I seem to be getting a bit obsessed with this image . . .

More comparisons . .

This was the quickest, and I think, it’s my favourite – – Just a Pentel Japanese Brush Pen.

Then another attempt in colour .

Another of these comparisons . . .

It didn’t start out as a comparison table- I just got bored with waiting for the watercolours to dry so I started on other versions of the same objects . . . the original was this, with water colours and a Copic Fineliner. I’ve been using these Pentel colour brush pens for a while,,but this time I used Koh-i-Noor pans.

The idea was to draw/sketch larger – so from a Moleskine to a sheet bigger than A3 –unfortunately the image only sort of doubled in size…..

So I started this whilst the first -‘coat’ was drying. This was done Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens, for the colour and Copic for the black outline.

Apples and Tomatoes . . . part 4 . . . the end

Intro:This is one of those tests that ‘pen and paper’ people like to do every now and then -it’s the first time I’ve done it and, tragically,  found it interesting – I must get out more.

Moleskine users put there will know that the paper varies a lot.- whereas the watercolour paper is ‘watercolor’ friendly- the sketch book is paper is a lot less so. Whilst preparing for a brief visit to the UK was wondering what to take….

Version IV- This was done very quickly using Staedtler Triplus colour pens and a Pentel Japanese style brush pen- again the colours are not meant to be ‘realistic’ but I wanted to do something very quickly – –  2 or 3 mins – – (unfortunately the obsessive in me says ‘and it looks like it, too . . . . .’ ) In fact, it was done on a scrap of paper,  so it doesn’t really help the test.- and the tomatoes have been eaten – – Anyway, all comments, welcome!
