Pen Drawing Of Old Chair, Camera, Hat, And Shoulder Bag Still Life

The title of this still life is, Back With The Camera.

This shows what you can do with a fine tipped marker and some felt tipped markers.  I sketched it in first with a 2b pencil and then went over it with the sharpie to make a nice line drawing.  It could have been finished right there as a simple line drawing but I was in the mood to push to something deeper.

 I did a lot of contour work but then got carried away and used cross thatching over some of it.  I like to use areas that are flat black for contrast and interest so the back leg and bottom parts of the chair were brushed in with a black marker as well as a few incidental parts.

I tried to put in shadow but it didn't work out because the back leg was lost so then I had to clean it up; to clean it up I used white Liquitex Gesso to paint out the shadowed areas. I scanned it into the computer but cleaned it up a little more with the free gimp software; I was not happy about needing to do that since it was supposed to be an ink drawing and not a computer drawing but on the other hand, it was only a little tweak so I guess it is OK.
