Shipbreaking

 
Still trying out my flex pen. This time a drawing inspired by a photograph of Edward Burtynsky of a shipbreaker yard in Bangladesh. The flexpen should be used before adding the colour, it loses it's subtlety when drawing on painted parts. Tekening gebaseerd op een foto van Burtynsky van een scheepssloperij in Bangladesh. Probeersels van mijn nieuwe flexpen.

Burtynsky is a great photographer, his ship series are impressive. Good sketch.

I am a mere newcomer as regards to the use of fountain pens. I often read how people use different brands of pens. I can not believe the result is quite different as with "ordinary" one.May be I am wrong. I see a certain parallel in the use of photographic cameras. It does not matter which trademark is written on the camera but who is standing behind the camera. I am wondering if it's apply to the fountain pens as well.....

Bedankt voor de waarderende woorden, thanks for the kind words.
Ludek, in principle I agree, Capra's pictures often outclass modern time digital work.
But I find that when progressing in art (or whatever it is what we are doing) I am getting more precise in how and what I want to draw/say/do. So I start looking for the tools that can deliver what I want.
Wouldn't you agree?

I can see you're enjoying that Bulletproof black! Nice, isn't it?

Yes Rob,although it bleeds more than I am used to with lexington grey. But grey does not work with this pen.
