Felt Ink Pens/miniature and small size Art


Felt Ink pens (Sharpies) are easy to travel around with and I started to make miniature, small pictures and designs. This medium got me away from my easel for awhile and is faster when applying color. Colors are vibrant and there are many techniques. It's different and requires a different approach.  Planning the color for highlights as well as placement of objects especially when overlapping them will help to acquire the desired result.  Once a color is applied its difficult to change it. A bit of layering over colors is not quite as effective as other mediums and may only oversaturate the paper because it is wet, so I have to plan ahead.  Although whiteout or an erasing pen might help, once the color is applied its difficult to change.  In my opinion sometimes these strokes of colors  can be worked into the picture and just let Art be Art.  Some Sharpie's colors are strong and vivid which makes this medium a little different and unique and it can effect the Style.
