“The Rock and the Snow”, Biroscape 3620
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.
I greet you and leave you to the video, not before having wished you all the best, and, remembering to subscribe to the channel, to support it, to like it, to share the video if you liked it, and to comment under the description.
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.

The sheet has been divided by a pencil line into two parts where I will go to perform two distinct and consequent drawings, on the one side a drawing that is the result of the sketches I took in the place where I chose the subject and on the other side another drawing that will testify as for me Drawing is an arcehological research within the layers of my history, above all and obviously of my artistic history. A research that helps me to enter into my perception of the world, of the things around me and of the systematic revision that I do of them and of the way in which I analyze them through the graphic dismemberment and the graphic reconstruction. This modus operandi of my eye is witnessed with the help of my hand by means of the graphic or pictorial signs that appear on the surface.

“The Cloud and Cézanne”0
In this viedo I draw a big cloud in a small paper.
In the middle of the video, I read in background an extract of a Conversation between Emil Bernard and Paul Cézanne about the representation of the nature.

Subscribe to the channel, it is very welcome.
The phases of a pen drawing from the Biroscape series.
Biroscapes are pen drawings made exclusively with the BIC pen. They measure 14.8 x 10.5 cm.
In this video I used the BIC CRISTAL pen and the BIC CRISTAL FINE pen. Fabriano cardboard has a weight of 240 g.
The Biroscape does not have a title yet and I would love it if you suggest one to me.
The paintings that I mention in the video are by Andrea Mantegna and John Constable and in the description of the video you will find the reference below
