Callidoodle

Artist: Leigh Reyes, Philippines
Artist Statement: My drawings have words and my words have drawings. I “callidoodle” – many of my drawings, incorporate calligraphic strokes, for directional texture. My preferred pens are fountain pens with flexible nibs.

For this drawing, I appropriated this pose from a picture of me many years back, but it’s really all about her hair swirling with her thoughts. The ink is primarily Pilot Blue Black, with areas in Diamine Registrar’s ink. The washes came from the remnants of muddy browns and grays in my watercolor box. Zeta Series sketchbooks can handle mixed techniques and media with grace. They’re my new favorite.

MEDIA: Ink and watercolor
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
