Variety in Ink Scribble Drawings

Look how wide a net the definition of scribble encompasses.

I have picked a range of British artist Adam Riches's work. I am presenting a variety in a seemingly simple style like this has.

As you can see from the flowing pieces, this is all but easy. A lot of attention goes into these deceptively random lines. They don't follow the same course from one drawing to the next. In fact they seem to take different routes to produce all sorts of diverse portraits.

Different ink colors provide subtle accents to the black and white mainstream.

Many points to consider and appreciate in these drawings. I hope you find the visual confirmation of my words, in the coming art.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.

  1. I have an artist friend who does this kind of work. I always thought it was very interesting to see what would come out of the lines she was putting down on paper.

    1. It's a fascinating form of art. It's amazing at how many variations of the the style there are within one artist and one page.

      Have a fantastic Wednesday. 🌿️🌺️🌿️
