Ballpoint-Pen Portrait in Color

Yesterday, we looked at a beautifully shaded ballpoin-pen portrait of Audrey Hepburn.

Today, I’ve got another ballpoint pen portrait of . . . someone . . .  It also has that subtle shading that’s so hard to imagine creating with a ballpoint, but this one is also in color.

 

 

Be sure to study the illustration of the knit work in the hat and scarf.

I know artists who would have trouble with that detail using something as forgiving as a regular pencil or charcoal. But a ballpoint?!?!?!?!

Time to start practicing.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and learned a little something more about drawing with ballpoints.  If you did, why not share this post with a friend?  Thanks!
