David Bowie - Eyes of a Starman, India Ink on Canvas Drawing

India Ink (Faber Castell) on a narrow canvas panel. 14″ x 18″

I’ve never done ink on canvas before, but I thought it somehow fitting to the image I was trying to create.

One thing I love and hate about ink is how cheat-proof it is. I don’t get to erase it or to tweak it, not like with a faulty stroke of a pencil. With ink, my first pen stroke is my last. A bit like live music – once heard, the faulty note cannot be taken back, but the piece is all the more beautiful for its presence.
