- I like to use a black pen for sketching. It is portable and always on hand. I like to use a small fine lined pen called Le Pen by Marv for sketching and note taking.
- Pens are liberating. There is no fussing and erasing. You put down your marks and make them work. I like the more interesting look of an ink drawing.
- Pens help you become more confident....since you can't erase you learn to be bolder and more confident in your drawing skills.
- You can do more than lines with a pen. You can shade very effectively. Doug Dawson does his thumbnail value studies with a pen and they are awesome! (saw him do this at the IAPS convention)
