Ballpoint Pen on Cardboard, 14,8 x 10,5 cm, September 2022
This drawing is part of an in-depth study on the sign which may appear simple but which reveals how the work is constantly changing. Some time ago I recorded a video where I showed the work done from start to finish. It seemed finished and instead I found myself working on it again and again. and this is the result Below the video with the first draft
Ballpoint Pen On Cardboard, 14,8 x 10,5 cm, December 2021 (Link to the video below)
In this drawing, I want to represent the snow on the rock. What I do in this drawing is just draw the dark rock, without a hatch. Filling only the dark spaces of the rock, the parts that emerge from the snow. The snow, in fact, is represented by the white sheet, and it is the rocks that must emerge and that I am going to draw. I Draw black to draw snow. The snow is not drawn, the snow, in this case, is already on the cardboard, but the rock distinguishes it and presents it to our eyes. It is a deception. Drawing with the pen gives me the opportunity to dig furrows, to push the sphere against the cardboard. If I look at this drawing against the light, I see these grooves, which represent the passage of the pen and therefore my drawing. And this is very important to me. It should also be important for the viewer to be able to see them and reconstruct the path of the pen. I use two pens, the BIC Cristal Original, for the whole drawing, and the BIC Cristal Large for the final part, wherein some places I place a deeper black.

Good vision, I hope that the passages on the sheet can be a true testimony of the path of the composition and construction of the work.
