Pat Price - Pen and Ink Artist
I began drawing in 2006 to make patterns for my intarsia woodworking projects.
Starting in pencil then in 2008 pen and ink, drawing soon replaced woodworking. I enjoy the challenge of drawing in pen and ink as everything must be depicted in only two colors. This is done through the use of different pen strokes and pen widths as well as the intensity of the color achieved through layering.
I taught myself to draw, learning techniques from books and trial and error. I also received lots of helpful guidance from friends and fellow artists.
My drawings are all sourced from photographs, many provided by friends and family.
I am a member of the Stockton Art League in Stockton. My award winning work is shown in the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery in Stockton and in juried shows in and around the foothills and Central Valley of California.
Two books of my favorite works, entitled “Pen & Ink Drawings” published in 2009, and “Pen & Ink Drawings and More” published in 2011, are available for sale through the bookstore at Blurb.com.
