Black ink drawing of a statue of Ganesha, the elephant with a human's body and four arms.

Video: Time lapse of “Ganesha”

Ah, Ganesha. A favourite subject! I’ve drawn it two or more times before so I don’t need any sketch underneath anymore.

I used a flat brush and black Sumi ink. The thinner the ink in the brush the more the strokes look like pencil, but it’s all brush and ink! I used a Geranium Red ink brushpen from Kuretake for the scarf.

28-second time-lapse of my hand painting with a flat brush with black ink, and without sketch, a statue of Ganesha, the elephant with a human’s body and four arms.

This is part of a series using red as a highlight colour. See the other four.
