218 - SACRE COEUR, PARIS - DAVE EDWARDS - INK - 2008 by 


#As of 20th April 2010, this has been Featured once, Favourited 9 times and Viewed 1,009 times … many thanks everyone

I used to do lots of pen and ink work and then I started doing colourful “bendy” buildings.

Pen and ink takes me longer (much longer sometimes) than colour work, but I thought it was time I did another.

I took a chance and drew one of my favourite Paris views … but I used a subtle form of my “bendy buildings” style for a lot of the picture.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS LOOKS BETTER ENLARGED.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Fantastic detail,Dave,how long does it take to complete such a task!!!

  • Thanks Lance. I didn’t time myself, although I sometimes do, but when I did pen and inks regularly it usually took about ten or twelve hours. I used to do them on A4, but I now use A3, which of course is bigger.

    Excellent work, BLY. I could imagine that this drawing takes some time to complete.

  • Thanks Paul … may I mention that it looks better in the enlarged view.

    Beautiful and gorgeous work. black and white is an interesting departure from your colorful drawings…

  • Thanks Izzybeth; you are kind. It’s actually the colorful drawings that are my new style though; I did nothing but pen and ink for many years. This one is something I have done this week (finished it tonight). I don’t want to replace my colour work though; I’ll try to do both.

    SUPER GOOD, LIKE A PRO, GOOD DRAWING…CONGRATS…HOW DID THE SHOW GO SO FAR, ANY SALES? INTEREST…?

  • I’m not allowed to sell anything, but there has been some interest. If I survive to 65 I will be allowed to sell stuff then … only seven years to go.

    A combo of pen and ink and your bendy style, Dave. Very good, and Montmartre is my favourite part of Paris. I stayed there for a week, a few years ago, a rooftop apartment in the student area!

  • I stayed on Rue Abbesses in a Comfort Hotel and was pretty high up too. I adore Montmartre.
