biro pen on A4 paper

a return to my first-love the biro pen , a format i stuck to doggedly for years before at last biting the bullet and grabbing a paintbrush – but its great to return to – here is a symbol of the spirit about to slay the flesh.

    Amazing what can be achieved by you with just a biro pen.

    Extremely good drawing Matthew, I was scribbling with a biro myself today and really enjoying it I think it actually frees you up because you cannot use an eraser and just get on with the drawing

  • yes so true, its do or die with the biro, it all came flooding back as i drew with it , just get on with it as you say

    I hope he makes bits of it. Well done, the biro is a great medium and I use it myself from time to time in my art. Its amazing the difference in tone you can get from something that cost about 12c.

  • yes i’m sure he will – and yes the biro is sorely underrated, the pen of the people o’d say, no need for costly ecursions to be an artist, these 100 bucks metallic numbers do not a rembrandt make

    I wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance of creating something that good with a biro though I have attempted a few things lol.

    Overcoming the flesh, awesome image and power, the force of the human will to overcome mankind’s greatest sin. Well done…purity is underestimated and scarcely thought of and isn’t always exactly what people think either.

    love that pattern above that reminds me of a Cathedral ceiling!

  • ha – well o’m glad youve left the biro market free, your already a musical, artistic, equestrian poet, get yer paws aff ma biro – thanks for enjoying and revealing
