DwightYassanyInkDrawings

My ink drawings are large-scale and highly detailed. Each drawing can take up to 200 hours of work spanning months due to the level of detail. I begin with pencil on archival paper. Ink is applied over pencil marks then pencil is erased leaving only ink. My work is based on photographic observations, reference materials and expert’s opinions. I use a 3x0 radiograph technical pen for the entire drawing, (0.25 millimeter). I can achieve soft shading, softer than pointillism, by utilizing the paper roughness which allows the pen nib to skip across the surface of the paper. By allowing the pen nib to skip across the surface, the black ink can appear similar to pencil in softness. Holding the ink pen directly onto the surface allows for darker, bolder lines. Anatomically correct, my drawings utilize the natural variation of shading of the feathers and fur to incorporate scriptural references. Conveying themes unique to each ink drawing, interpretation is from the viewer’s perspective. You can contact me at Dwight0@att.net for more information or to purchase original art work.
