A B&B in England

A pen and ink sketch of an English B&B I stumbled upon on a social network. Done entirely using Sakura Pigma fine point pens of various sizes.

The Gate

A couple of days ago, I had parked my car near this gate. The concrete poles around the gate and the thick foliage interwoven with the barbed wire fence made an interesting pattern. I quickly sketched the outline using pencils and later on finished this with pigma micron pens and inks.

The Bridge

This picture is based on a photo I saw on G+ of a stone bridge near a city. It’s not an exact replica of the photo, but pretty inspired by it. Done using Sakura Pigma fine point pens and ink washes using brush.

 

Ghost Town

I recently saw some photos of a ghost town (an old town abandoned since few years) on a social networking site (https://plus.google.com/+JeffreySullivan/posts). The photos were a dream come true for someone looking for great texture references. I combined a few of these images to create this composition. Sakura Pigma fine point pens on smooth paper.

Holi Fun!

The festival of Holi brings about the joy of dousing one’s friends with water and colors. Here’s a pen, ink and watercolor sketch of the fun in action.

A Soldier’s Homecoming

Another moody picture of a soldier coming home after a call of duty. I initially thought of showing him handicapped, but then thought of doing this picture on a more positive, optimistic note. Done using fine point pens and fountain pen ink.

Reader Under the Tree

I especially enjoyed doing this sketch of a reader under the tree. The distant house and the grassy land lend this picture a serene look. Inked using the Sakura pigma fine point pens of various points.
